"will this still happen ,when he always unplugs his p/c from the wall every night"

It will happen at the time that he's set in automatic updates.

So, if he's set it for 18:00 every day, and assuming he's online at that time any updates will be download and installed then.

Obviously, updates can only happen if the PC is switched on and connected to the internet.
