You would have had to look at all the commits to the trunk after the previous commit to the release branch to track down what changed between merges to the release branch. The detailed commit messages go to the trunk and the release branch gets "merge from trunk" or "syncing up with trunk" because it is bundling together many changes made to the trunk since the last time the branches were merged.
