Default How does updates work?

I used to have a ZL with 4.2.2 from my carrier. I used to get regular updates such as walkman, music etc in my updates section.

Now i've a brand new Z - with 4.1.2 from the same carrier!! there are no further updates for Z from them
So instead of waiting I've gone ahead and flashed it with stock 4.3 ROM from here. everything seems to work fine so far.

But there is nothing in the updates seciton yet. for example the walkman app with this rom is old. Why am i not getting notified automatically about this? Is it because this ROM is not from my carrier?
If yes, will i not get any update notification?

If you are on 4.3 you should already have the latest apps and you will get notified of any updates in the update centre as they happen.

Then shouldn't I be getting the notification for the walkman and movies update? We already know there are newer versions of this released by sony.
