AFAICT the service only runs the mlocate update once on boot.  What
you need for regular mlocate DB updates is the systemd timer, which
will run the necessary script at midnight every day by default:

systemctl enable mlocate-updatedb.timer

Note that last bit reads "timer" not "service".  You can check if it's
enabled by running:

systemctl list-timers

and looking for "mlocate-updatedb.timer" in the fifth ("UNIT") column
- the entry in the first column is when it's next scheduled to run.
