Extensions are the back end supportability for the point product in epo server.  It adds policies, tasks, queries, etc. that epo uses to manage the point product. 

Packages are deployable packages to the clients - the installers or patches that get installed on the clients.

If you update a client version, you must upgrade the extension to same version or higher extension.  If you upgrade an extension only, they are backward compatible and the clients can be updated at a later time.
