In general: Please answer only if have knowledge of the subject.

1. There is only one efi partition and is always mounted, operating systems are differentiated by directory name
2. on the efi partition only the directory that belongs to the running os is updated.
3. the updated grubx64.efi points directly to the grub of the running os.
My standalone grubpartition has its own grubx64.efi and has no kernels onboard and can not be updated in the normal way.
For that reason i have to do it by hand.

Grub-install is collection of procedures and programs and i want to known which part (program) creates the grubx64.efi and is there any documentation.

To install grub2 you use grub2-install. That is true for every supported
platform including EFI. On 64 bit EFI it will generate grubx64.efi among
other things.

may be the need is only to mount the efi partition under /boot/EFI, update with yast and umount
