OEM updates shouldn't erase any data or reset your device at all. They're designed and tested to cause as few problems as possible for the end user on a stock machine. (Not that it doesn't happen on occasion, but that seems to be the exception instead of the rule)

The only exception would be if you're rooted and using a custom ROM - then the update could brick your Tab so I'd either avoid it or wait until a compatible version for your ROM is put out.
