Of course LR needs ACR.  How do you think LR converts RAW files for new cameras?

It has the ACR code pipeline built in.  It doesn't use the ACR plugin, nor is LR even capable of using any PS plugins.

If you buy a new camera, you need to install an update to LR.  And the updated LR works because the newest version of ACR is installed as a dependency.

No, it's not.  It's integrated.  I'm using a computer right now that has no version of Photoshop or of the ACR plugin installed on it whatsoever and LR converts raw files just fine.
