In the Manifest file, the the manifest includes the entire pathname when building the file source lines, but the QuickStart Manifest samples only have the filename.

Which was meant to be the correct way?

PATH is not required as Updater will picks up the path from manifestUri attribute value in element called applicationUpdater from the application configuration file.

This is just one of the contradictions. If you use the Manifest Tool posted here, it includes the entire path when building the Manaifest. Of course, the path is valid only on the user's local (or client machine).

If you modify the code, so the path is removed (in the manifest tool), then the routine that calculates the hash fails to work anymore (because it doesn't know the path to the file).
