The simplicity of the plugin helps it be lightweight & easy to use.
That also means the one line of active PHP code that it consists of (it then being what WordPress recommends in its current documentation per https://wordpress.org/support/article/configuring-automatic-background-updates/#disable-emails-via-filter) is likely to continue to work exactly as expected unless WordPress were to completely overhaul its setup regarding this (with there appearing to be no plans for this.) Especially considering it’s using a filter so it’s even more flexible if things were to change in the future (won’t outright break things due to a code error beyond WordPress doing a fundamental change to a core function like
__return_false& that’d then break the majority of plugins & themes out there [they’d need a good reason for doing so & it appears they obviously have no plans for doing that either.])
