I can confirm that WhateverGreen for me is not necessary and never has been, the update was as perfect and normal as a real Mac. I don't know why other people need WhateverGreen for everything to work.
It depends on the make/model of your AMD GPU and the port that you use to connect the monitor(S).
In some situations (like yours) the make/model/port match the defaults in the Apple AMD drivers/framebuffer so WEG is not needed.
In other situations the make/model/port does not match ... resulting in a black screen or glitchy graphics.
WhatEverGreen reads the AMD GPU VBIOS and creates/injects a suitable AMD framebuffer and patches MacOS if necessary to get things working.
