For many years the full MacTeX install package was on the DVD. This package contained its own version of the full TeX Live.  A few years ago we switched to using the Unix install script to install the TeX Live piece, so the install package only installs four GUI apps and Ghostscript.

The internet version of MacTeX installs everything and is MUCH larger than the material on the DVD.
