No it is not an expansion it is a completely new recall that includes older ones already recalled with a newly designed water cover for the control module. The recall states if it already has the previous cover installed to remove it and replace with the new one.

Mine is manufactured after the original recall and already had the bolt blocking the hole instead of the rubber plug and is now included in this new recall.

You are confusing Australia and the US. You may have a second recall in Australia but the US doesn't. It was only an expansion of the first recall in the US. I have a 2014 Cherokee and had the earlier recall done. Both Chrysler's and the US Government's Recall Website says I am up to date and good to go.

Exactly, and this is what the new one expanded to:

Jeep is voluntarily recalling around 53,000 Cherokees with power liftgates to install better moisture shielding for their electronics. The recall affects only Cherokees made after February 18, 2015, for the 2015 and 2016 model years.

It touches very few, if any, Cherokees from the first recall.

The Mopar Owner Connect website seems to work best with FireFox or Chrome. It definitely doesn't like Safari. The Android Mopar Companion app works really well, everything is automatic, and is there when you first open it up.
