Kia Updated my "Batteries" Today in service

They told me there was an update for the batteries.

Anyone has an idea of what they were talking about?

Probably a software update as to how the batteries are managed by the ECU (BCU?).

Assuming you don't have the Plug-in, then you will find that the management system maintains the battery charge within quite a narrow window, to maintain battery efficiency and life. That window was changed sometime in the last year or so, and it looks like you just got the update.
