automatic updates feature windows server

Last Modified: 2016-02-13
What role does "automatic updates" play on windows server in relation to WSUS. I have run some MBSA reports over windows file servers, and the only server massively behind on patch status does not have the automatic updates feature  configured. I am guessing this plays a role in interacting with WSUS? Can anyone give an example on the role it plays with WSUS?
