Default New kernel and version update?

So I was reading on another forum that the new Mercury's are shipping with an updated kernel and 2.3.6. So I checked under settings> about phone> online updates and there were options for firmware update and software update that I don't think were there before. I didn't try them because I don't want an update that might be worse. I usually keep my background data turned off, don't know if that would keep it from upgrading automatically or not, but has anybody noticed this? Anyone with a new Mercury please compare here:

This makes me think I might be right about the Mercury shortage having something to do with updates going on. Anybody with an updated version; is the native tethering still available?
