Should GPX uploaded to GPS Mapping update Rucksack?

I have uploaded a GPX Track we completed recently to GPS mapping. It shows up on the overlay 'Your Track Heatmap'. I was expecting it to add the 2 Outlying Fells included in the walk to our Rucksack Hill Statistics. It has not done this. Is it supposed to? I thought it would. Have I missed something?
The GPX file date is 19/5/24

It can do that if you're a supporter. It's an option in "Settings". Look for 'Track load offers to update your log book'.

But I think you have it turned off at the moment.
