Sony 70-200 F4 software updates?

Just took delivery of and will begin testing my 70-200 F4 Sony lens, to replace my now-sold Canon 70-200F4 L lens. Glad to be finally going all native-Sony.

For my Canon optics, I've NEVER had to deal with any firmware updates for a lens! Now, with the Sony, I've found the SEL70200G System Software Update (Mac, and a fricking driver uploader(??), as well as the usual Sony convoluted instructions for doing a firmware update.  I successfully did it for my A7RIII & A7III bodies, but never for a lens.

How important are these lens updates??
