Nope, I've Office XP Pro on my XP machine.  Just did Office XP updates
yesterday.  There's a separate site to update Office from the one that
updates the OS (for which there is a built-in link, "Windows update").
But I do think the link to the Office updates was on the Windows update
page -- but it has to followed.... :-)

P.S. - Plus, Microsoft has a *LOT* of other software that even those two
        pages don't cover.  They make a large number of products.  I don't
        for instance, think it'd look for updates of my Microsoft keyboard's
        utility programs (driver maybe, but not the utilities).  Or for my
        Microsoft optical mouse. :-)

P.P.S. - I plan to update my laptop to XP one of these daya.  I've had the
          CD's to do it for a year or two (from Dell).
