Like posted above, I just got the OTA notification on my unlocked S21 Ultra on the Visible network.
It installs the BUKF build and is still on the November security update.
However, it fixes the extremely annoying 120 Hz bug that was present in BUK7. I have been using the Show Refresh Rate toggle found in the Dev Options, and I can verify that the phone stays at 120 Hz when scrolling even after your finger has stopped touching the screen. It does of course revert to 60 Hz after a while, but that's way after the scrolling animation is complete.
Edit: Snapchat is still wonky in that it decides when it wants to be 120 or 60 Hz, but that's how that app has always been.
As far as I know, that's a carrier feature, not a CSC one. It's provided by your wireless network, not Samsung
Not entirely correct. On the Pixel series, an unlocked bootloader is required to flash the official manufacturer firmware. The only update that is possible with a locked bootloader, at least on Pixels, is OTA, whether automatic or sideload.
Thanks for your answer, but you helped me with a decision, I'm from the Dominican Republic, I got the SM-G998U1 and I want a clean firmware that updates quickly, which firmware would you recommend for flashing? I ask you why you have more experience, I come from the s20+. Thank you
Firmware ending in U1 is the only "clean" version that exists. So you should stay with what you haveThanks for your answer, but you helped me with a decision, I'm from the Dominican Republic, I got the SM-G998U1 and I want a clean firmware that updates quickly, which firmware would you recommend for flashing?

No, that's not an AT&T version. All bands should be enabled in all firmwares, but whatever your Service Provider SW is set to is probably what determines priority
The only benefits I can think of would be enabling Samsung features that Verizon disables, like the Spam Filter, and removing some of the bloat that might be impossible to remove on the VZ version.
