It updates or recreates the initrd.

Real Install is the same as installing on harddrive. So after installing
you can work like on a "real" system with your own username and
configurations saved to usb stick. The root partition is mounted rw and
not compressed. In contrast to this a  Live Stick means running a live
system mounted on a read only compressed squashfs image which only
allows to save changes via a seperate rw filesystem.

This is called remastering (rebuilding the ISO with customized apps).
Try to search something on the net there are thousands of tutorials.
I might also do a quick video tutorial in my next Lubuntu Screencast if
you whish .
