Is a New Version of Defender Installed With E5 Policies?

When a device first has one or more E5 security policies applied. Does a new version of Windows Defender get pushed down to the device at the same time, or is it just the policies that were applied?

    Which Defender? It may help to clarify. I am also not clear on the "E5 policy" comment.
