I would expect it should be updated in org-mode v9.5, but not 9.4.x as
we should only change such things for major version releases.

Perhaps we need to clarify that the supported versions is based on the
version of Emacs which was stable at the time of release of the org
version. For example, org 9.5, being released this week, means it would
support Eamcs 27.x, 26.x and 25.x, but not Emacs 24.x. If Emacs 28 is
released next month, this would not alter the supported versions as 9.5
was released before Emacs 28. When org 9.6 is released, the supported
versions would be updated to include whatever version of Emacs is stable
at that point (likely 28.x) and the two previous versions.
