No, AFAIK, these updates do nothing on its own. They only add control
capabilities that your OS has to use (or be patched to use).

But if the question was, if there is nothing more to do in coreboot,
then yes.

AFAICS, microcode updates for the X220 (and more [1]) have been updated
in our blobs repo.
