That certainly does happen and individual packages can be excluded (and
the bugs reported) ... but upgrades still need to happen whenever possible.

We have released  4 different kernels since 6.5 (so 5 kernels including
the one on the 6.5 iso ... so keep checking if it works).

Again, these updates happen because there are issues that need to be
fixed, and it is very important that they get applied.
