It could still check and write a log entry for the administrator. Or
it could have a module, accessible only to some authenticated user,
that listed recommended upgrades. It doesn't.

And it's not necessarily a daemon. You can start it in batch mode to
check things. It could have an option to check upgrades in that case.
It doesn't, either.
