They did some years ago. Then for a time they didn't.

Arm changed that in that currently its still the version with the best support for that platform, as none of the production releases have official support. I suspect once these stabilise, with a production gcc release with full arm support, we will likely go back to the old update patterns.

Since arm and i386 get different versions of gcc-devel, it would be fine to update the arm version more frequently than the i386 version.
