Dealerships would be more than happy to update you, but the cost for this isn't under your maintenance agreement. This means you will be charged for the update.
Unless there is a specific recall/campaign that calls for updating the modules - you'll have to foot the bill. For those with custom programming or profile changes (ie: DVDinMotion, or other convenience mods), these will likely be wiped out depending on the target of the update.
