Software update when in for mot ?

Took my 2012 sdv6 in to the main dealer this morning for its MOT and was told they will also do a free health check. Both MOT and health check came back clean and was told the car is all fine. I read the health check form and it was just the normal brakes tyres and so on but nothing was mentioned about any software updates.

Reason for asking is, I paid for the mot and got in the car and left the dealer and the car seemed much more responsive and seemed to have more power and torque than it did when I dropped it off. At first I thought it was just in my head so went for a drive and it still felt quicker than it ever has since the day I bought the car. No more slow pick up when trying to get out of a junction in a hurry and gearbox seems to always be in the right gear.

It was meant to of had the updates for this 12 months ago but felt the same when collected but now feels like I always expected it to drive.

Would they have loaded updates on a mot and health check ? 2012 3.0 SDV6 Autobiography santorini black with ebony/cirrus interior.

2013 Range Rover Sport SDV6 HSE Stornoway Grey

When mine went in for a service they did the software update you talk about and it had the same effect and mine is an HSE Dynamic with the 306 output. It was very noticable and since then I have never had to use sport mode or paddles when I want to overtake as the car has more than enough get up and go in D. I was only aware the update was going to be done because the dealership wanted to keep the car overnight to do it, there was no mention in the service report of a specific upgrade/ update as several were carried out. 2018 Melting Silver Mini Countryman PHEV - a test car before Seeing if I could go to totally Petrol/Diesel free motoring

When I first drove from the dealer I looked to to check thinking I had put it in sport and not drive but it was in drive.
They had enough time to do an update as I was told the MOT would take an hour but I was sat in the showroom for nearly 2 ! 2012 3.0 SDV6 Autobiography santorini black with ebony/cirrus interior.
