It never was. That's just a UI shortcut for "get me the newest version of all
the packages I have installed". It never was and it never meant to be a
substitute for system update.

The selection of packagages eligible for update is a (sat-)solver
function, taking solver policies and conflict resolution into account.

Sure. But that's the system update. That's different.
