I think it would depend on when you got it out by. As far as I can tell Ubuntu just imports Lilypond direct from Debian Unstable and doesn't make any direct intervention in it. I don't think there's even a volunteer contributor who takes any responsibility (which there is for e.g. Frescobaldi).

There have been a bunch of occasions in the past when Ubuntu hasn't picked up on an upgraded stable release of Lilypond despite it being available, for exactly this reason.
