With On-Demand patching on, you will download what's considered to essential files after a game update. As you enter zones, instance, missions with updates files, you will download those. For instance if you never go into any Klingon zones/missions, you won't have to download any updates for those areas.

With On-Demad patching off, you will download every updated file after a game patch. Your 5GB download (actually closer to 2.5G as the data is compressed for transmission over the 'Net) sound about right for all of the game changes to date.
