OpenWrt router with non-OpenWrt access points

Hello, I'm a networking novice, but fairly technical. I know some things but also know there are many gaps and even complete misunderstandings in my knowledge.

I have a Linksys WRT32X router and am looking into adding some 802.11ax access points to it. I understand OpenWRT doesn't quite support this protocol yet, so I would just use the manufacturer's firmware.

I assume that many manufacturers do not release security patches as frequently as OpenWRT does, so would I lose that security benefit by having non-OpenWRT access points (like Ubiquiti, for example)?

I use ubiquity access points with stock firmware and the firmware updates are pretty often.
