By "extra" I mean the boulders that you can load in a trap in addition to its normal load.
I presume we're talking about Sangband. My understanding (from play, not from source-diving) is that a boulder is dropped in addition to the trap's main load going off. That means that one-shot traps can continue to function with boulders after their main payload disappears, and repeating traps (e.g. melee weapons) can add boulder damage as well.

Could be wrong though - it's a while since I tried to add boulders to other trap loads.
