No, you don't. You download the update - which is 20 GB in size - and you get an
Solaris repository with the latest package versions for Solaris 11.3.

Paying Oracle customers don't get anything more recent either unless you have an
extra LTSS support contract which costs a lot of money.

I have used the 11.3 LRU update on my SPARC T5240 without any issues.

I didn't claim otherwise. I just said that Oracle is kind enough to at least
provide Solaris 11.4 to the community for free now with full access to the
update repositories.
