They are part of the deal.

If your package has reverse deps, you don't want to update it before
figuring out it's reverse dependencies anyway, you never know what
slot/version restrictions you're going to get.

If it is a package without reverse dependencies, updating to the most
recent slot and/or version should be expected unless the user has the
slot defined in the world file.
