How do updates work for PS4 (or PS3)

First, I apologize if this has been asked/answered ad nauseam, however I am unable to find out or understand how updates to the Plex client work on the Playstation. If someone has a "how to Google it" link for me I'll humbly take that as my efforts so far have not been able to answer my question.

My question is, how does the Playstation 4 get the updated versions of Plex? From the PlaystationNetwork I'll download the Plex application, currently it shows as 180.6MB in size and version v1.01 from June 6, 2016. I then open the application and check the version information and it shows as Plex v2.10.4 and PS4 v01.40.

Every so often Plex dev's update the PS application and my version info changes when I open the application, however downloading the Plex app from the PSNetwork doesn't change the version information.

Does the client update automatically?

I don't know what to put in my signature! I use Plex on many of my Windows PC's, a few of my Linux PC's, Roku 3, Roku 4, my PS3 and PS4, my Samsung TV, my Sony TV, and my Samsung phone. I use Plex!
