Are you using genbasedir? The relevant options are --listonly,
--hashonly and --partial (or nothing at all).

W/o options genbasedir is already doing everything. If you want to
update the metadata incrementally (only for a section, because only
one was changed), you can use --partial.

If you are using --listonly the "release" file is skipped. You can
have the hash computed and inserted into it with --hashonly.

So it depends on what you currently use. I believe --hashonly is what
you need to use.

For reference, I build the metadata with

genbasedir --bloat --flat --listonly $tmptop $component
genbasedir --bloat --flat --partial --hashonly $tmptop $component
