OSM: How often does openstreetmaps update their building footprint data?

I was wondering if anyone knows how often OpenStreetMaps updates their building footprint data.

I can pull the building data from the Nominatrim API but it does not indicate when that footprint was identified. Further, I checked the OSM buildings wiki, but did not see any info on an update schedule or frequency.

It would be nice to know how long a gap there is between footprint extractions, so that we can understand how those footprints change over time.
