The WSUS 3 client, at this point, should have already been installed to the
WSUS2 server and deployed via selfupdate last summer, to alleviate several
known issues with the WSUS 2 client.
However, WSUS 3 SP1 also has an updated client which will trigger another
selfupdate once the SP installation is completed.

Generally the WUA selfupdate does *not* require a reboot.
HOWEVER... the newly updated WUA will trigger another detection, and if
there are approved updates, those updates may trigger a reboot, making it
appear that the WUA caused the reboot when it was merely the normal update
