It's a bit messy, but updates to that file have only ever been
infrequent, manual and best-effort. I simply performed a quick
comparison between the projects in the .gitmodules file and the
project list in Gerrit to find any references to nonexistent repos.
It's under the control of the Release Managers, so they can weigh in
on whether there's a necessity to update it through automation vs
sticking with the current manual process.

I'm not sure why "it seems jenkins updates the information" as it
definitely doesn't. You can see that file's full commit history at
(such as it is), updated once or twice a year by a total of three
people over the entirety of its lifespan... four once my fix is
