Basic question here: for these OTA OS updates, do we have to actively seek them out, download and install? Our are they pushed to the Droids automatically?

1) They are RANDOM. So random that if you bought 2 Bionics the same day, one could get an update days after the other. Back in 2009 when the OG Droid was getting its first update, someone had set up a Google map where you could "stick a pin" showing where and when you got the update. No rhyme or reason at all.
2) They can load in the background. If they do, when you bring your phone up from sleep (i.e., bringing the screen up) it'll say you have an update available. This is assuming you leave your phone on (maybe connected to a charger) all the time.
3) When you check for updates (as 94lt1 suggested), you are sending a signal to the carrier. The carrier checks your version and IMEI (International Mobile Equipment Identity) number and if you're scheduled to receive it, you'll see a message saying so. This means that if you're scheduled to get an update on April 26th at 3:47am, your phone will say that it's "Up to date" even though others have been getting the update since April 20th.
I am changing my opinion about 904. It works flawless with cm9 the 4/6/12 version. I've had zero data drops. Didn't work to well on GB for me. Aside from the few ics bugs in the rom. Battery has greatly improved. I had cm9 flashed before updating to 904. Not even sure it 904 effects cm9 but its working.
