No, this is not deliberate and must be a bug. The prefs.js we ship has:

user_pref("app.update.auto", false);
user_pref("app.update.enabled", false);


We enabled addon updates because we believe it is safer, but that is a
different setting. I see in my own TBB that app.update.auto has been set to
true, but I certainly didn't make it that way either as a user or developer.

Thanks for noticing, I'm going to add fixing this to our next update (September
