Another difference aside from the update policy is that d-m package
ships additional files, like the "flash-player-properties" setting
panel, the kde4 systemsettings integration. All are included in the
original Adobe Flashplayer tarball, but flashplugin-nonfree only
installs the plugin.
There is a bug report requesting helper files installation, see #630223.

In the end both packages ship the same crap, only d-m one ships it in a
more polished and exhaustive way.
