Do lenses get firmware updates?

ProbaBly a stupid question, but I know I have to plug my camera into my computer from time to time to get the latest firmware installed.  I read that some lenses get updates.  Does the overall camera update address this, or do the lenses have chips in them that I plug in while attached to the camera?
