It would seem that the game engine first refers to the original files, from the vanilla game. Then the game loads the expansion's files (if you're playing one), replacing any files with the newer or updated ones. The game then runs through your enables mods, finding newer files to replace the current ones. This means that mods do not require every single GameInfo file, only the ones that the modders have changed.
