The CUJ updates the files. for an offline catalog you need to do that manually though.
What about the .xml file that is located in the field named Windows Filter Configuration File within the Patch Global Configuration tab, how often does that get updated?
When we perform a Windows CUj, we receive several mapping errors like the one below, but after searching, I found this article: Windows Patching- product_categories.xml, is this something we should follow every once in a while?
No mappings were found for the selected product...and then in [ ] the Microsoft patch.

Engineering update the published product_categories.xml file on an ad-hoc basis. The same mappings per this published XML should be in any newer product distribution.
If you get "No mappings" messages, try the latest file from the community page. If you still get "no mappings", probably best is to log a ticket to get it reviewed and maybe a further update to the product categories may be needed.
