updates serve as implicit keepalives.
in that same section:
The calculated value indicates the maximum number of
seconds that may elapse between the receipt of successive
KEEPALIVE and/or UPDATE messages from the sender."
also check section 6.5:
"If a system does not receive successive KEEPALIVE, UPDATE, and/or
NOTIFICATION messages [...]"
