I assume you want a more detailed answer then the CompositionContainer ;)
Lets see if I can give you a general flow of how recomposition occurs. When you call Refresh on the DirectoryCatalog it will fire an event which the CatalogExportProvider is listening to and in turn will fire its ExportsChanging/ed events which get propagated
out to to the CompositionContainer (perhaps traveling through the AggregateExportProvider). The ExportsChanging event on the CompositionContainer is being listened for by the ImportEngine and when it receives this event it checks to see if the changed
exports affect any of the imports that it knows about and if so it will reset the values of the affected imports.
So to directly answer your question the ImportEngine updates the Plugins property.
I hope this makes some sense and gives you a better idea of how recomposition happens.
