Beta channel users don't get the final version of an extension?

Hi guys,

my question is based on the following discussion between Jan 'Honza'
Odvarko (lead developer of Firebug) and me.

So is it really like so, that users using beta/dev channel versions of
an extension never get the final version?
I don't know
Sounds a bit stupid to me, because if I decide to also get updates for
beta versions of a software, I also want to get an update to the final
version of it as soon as it's out.
