Fedora Updates not really free


I've heard that Fedora is not really consistent with her updates in terms of keeping it open-source.
Can anybody here confirm it? Does it mean in spite of being advertised as one of the open-source-friendliest Linux distros it still shoves some propietary software later, through updates?

I'm asking because recently I have found that my laptop ( HP Probook 430 g4 with Fedora 26 ) wanted to update some HP printer drivers from Fedora Updates repository and I haven't even used an HP printer on this laptop ( only a Brother model ).
