Notice the little * at the end of the column name?


*The Updates Replaced column shows only the latest update in any chain of superseded updates. For a comprehensive list of updates replaced, go to the Microsoft Update Catalog, search for the update KB number, and then view update details (updates replaced information is provided on the Package Details tab).

Ok so for this point above:

This update security that patchs the vulnerability MS16-047 is ID 3149090, and it also patch the vuln MS16-007 (that was originally pactchs with the update security 3121918).

-> So it is recommanded to apply the security update 3149090 to patch both MS16-047 & MS16-007

Is that so ?

It says install MS16-047 as it is a better patch than MS16-007. The MSXX-XXX is the patch, the long numbers are IDs for the knowledge base articles that discuss the issues.
