If you look at "Sync with maint" merges made to 'master', you'd
notice that most of them are only updating Documentation/RelNotes/*
and otherwise no-effect merges, simply because when such an up-merge
is made, everything in 'maint' is already in 'master' because topics
are merged to the latter first.  Security fixes that go through
embargoes are excempt for obvious reasons ;-)

I do not recall how it was before 2012.
