I'm pretty sure that's a "Yes." Over HTTP, for example, all the data
comes in a single response from Apache.

An update is not necessarily atomic though: it's possible for an
update to encounter a problem with your working copy halfway through,
in which case only have of it will be updated, and the rest won't.
You can fix whatever the problem was and issue another update.
