I am not sure ... there have been updates of .ARCH packages, in
particular luatex

[Tue Sep 19 17:59:00 2023] update: luahbtex.x86_64-linux (66986 -> 68135 at main)
[Tue Sep 19 17:59:01 2023] update: luajittex.x86_64-linux (66986 -> 68135 at main)

now those might not be *real* updates of the binary, but just a bump in
the revision number, but it would *still* overwrite anything that has
been put into bin/ARCH/luatex, in particular a self compiled binary.
