make sure you're also not upgrading kernel-header*, glibc* package, these packages required a reboot to take effect. if you're not updating those than you're good to update it without reboot. also, In update package you're services will also restart if package it effect/upgrading in "YUM update" process.

I updated glibc, libstdc++, libgcc. Is it means that reboot is requered?

I would recommend it.
BTW, the word you want is 'required'
