Typically not. If it doesn't work then of course I would recommend trying it.
regardless, if there can or cannot be an option for this, I would recommend you to try one thing on your own.
As you already mentioned, you can multiply your loots and so.
You can do that with your smithing stone, like I did.
you need to have 2 or more smithing stones in your inventory.
Activate "Gained material multiplier" and set an amount you want to get.
then, go to the next site of grace and open your chest, where you usually can depose unneeded or overflown items.
next, you move your all smithing stones into the chest, and leaving ONLY ONE in your inventory.
As you now move ONE stone from the chest INTO your inventory, the stone you moved will be multiplyied by the amount you entered before in the "Gained Material Multiplier".
I entered 100 and gained 100 additional stones for every time I moved stones from OR even into the chest.

It is good practice to do so every update, and it does no harm copying over the existing version that is there, and with aurora, it is a two-second process.
But to answer your question, it has been the same 790 KB file for nearly two weeks or more and has not been affected by steam updates thus far.
But to reiterate, it is recommended that you update after every trainer change and steam update.
