Default Unloaded, Loaded, Semi-loaded Calipers. What's the difference?!

Alright. I'm searching for a pair of reasonably priced rear disc brake calipers. I've found quite a large selection on Kragen's site, but I can't seem to figure out the difference between loaded and unloaded brakes (besides prices). Could someone please help me out?
As examples:
Unloaded:

Loaded:

Looking at these closer, it looks like the loaded ones have the bracket crap and rod things. Is that the only difference?

Thanks

Unloaded - Caliper
Loaded - Caliper, caliper mounting bracket, hardware (shims, sometimes bolts, rubber thingies, metal retainer thing), pads
Semi-Loaded - Caliper, caliper mounting bracket, hardware, no pads.
