Training a Neural Net (like GNUBG or XG)

As I understand it, the brain of backgammon neural net is trained by giving it some rules and letting it play against itself a bajillion times, adjusting the weights along the way. The brain will converge to a strong player.
Assuming my description is correct, is there any more "NN training" going on with the brains of GNUBG and/or XG? If not, why not? A recent thread points out that XG is stronger than GNUBG... maybe GNU just needs to study some more!
