Reflect will ALWAYS show “Click Build to update” when the Reflect version is newer than the one that was used for the most recent Rescue Media build, regardless of whether there have been any changes that affect Rescue specifically between those releases. That doesn’t mean it’s imperative to update.
I’m risk-averse too, but in my case that manifests as NOT updating Rescue Media, or even Reflect itself, unless the release notes suggest that there is a fix or enhancement that I do or at least might benefit from. Otherwise, updating has risks. I’ve seen multiple cases, and personally reported one here, of Reflect updates that introduced a bug rendering Rescue Media unusable. And there have been several Reflect updates containing fixes for bugs that were only introduced in the immediately preceding release.
I do NOT advocate the “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it” approach to the point of ignoring updates so long as my backups work. That has its own risks, which are clear from some other threads here. But I do suggest reviewing release notes and deciding which updates are important and which would be all risk and no reward for your particular case.
