This has always been the case since automatic feature updates became a thing of the past.  You will be notified that Microsoft considers your machine ready (or not quite ready) for a Feature Update in Settings, Update & Security, Windows Update pane.

Until you activate the Download and install link for the feature update, you will stay on your current version, at least for as long as the version you're on remains in support.  Very few will keep any one version on their machines until it is completely out of support. 

While there is no need to rush out to get the most recent Feature Update when it first comes out, it is a very good idea to manually trigger an update on your machine if Microsoft has put out the word that a given feature update is now considered "available for all computers."   As an example, Version 1909 was declared "available for all" months ago, and Joseph Lee posted an announcement to that effect in this very group.  When such comes out, if you are not on that version that's the time to manually update.

That day will come for 2004, too, and if you're on anything earlier than 2004 when it does (and most will be on 2004 already by then) you should manually update.  I don't know (and probably never will) why certain machines seem to not follow the standard presentation sequence for a feature update roll out.  If it doesn't, then you have good reason to manually trigger once the all clear has been given by Microsoft.  It prevents you from ending up 2 or more feature updates behind.

Science has become just another voice in the room; it has lost its platform.  Now, you simply declare your own truth.
