While, for some reason, you draw that conclusion, they have clearly stated that is not the case.  The last 5 years gets no package rebasing nor new feature as it shifts from Full Support mode to Maintenance mode.  In Maintenance mode they may do some hardware enablement as necessary but the bulk is just applying security and critical bug fixes.  Stream is for only for the Full Support phase where new features are being added.

They will already be testing updates before adding them to Stream so they'll continue to do that before adding them to RHEL in Maintenance mode.
