Apollo Lake with newer microcode: not affected by meltdown anymore?

Kernel 4.18.5 with old microcode:
[ 0.000000] microcode: microcode updated early to revision 0x2c, date =
Kernel 4.18.5 with new microcode (microcode-20180807.tgz), same config:
[ 0.000000] microcode: microcode updated early to revision 0x32, date =
This happens with 4.14.y and 4.9.y as well.
The same with ssb:
old microcode: spec_store_bypass:Vulnerable
new microcode: spec_store_bypass:Not affected
Is this intentional behavior? I have never seen this on other CPUs, such
as Gemini Lake or Baytrail, Haswell etc.
