Cisco 2960 - ROMMON updates?

Do ROMMON updates exist for the 2960 series switches? 

We have a "Catalyst 2960S-24PD-L"

The only software update that I see is the switch OS boot image:

https://software.cisco.com/download/home/282864093/type/280805680/release/15.2.2E9

There are also no ROMMON upgrade files for any of the other available versions.

Is this just normal for the 2960 to not have ROMMON upgrade options?

I worry about flash rot possibly eventually bricking the switch if there is flash containing the ROMMON, and no way to even reflash it with the same version it already has.

Perhaps this is the now rare case where the 2960 actually uses a permanent PROM or EEPROM? But those are getting to be old, low-capacity, and more expensive than using flash for everything now.

The 2960s series switches are at least 10 years old and they have been EOS and EOL a long time ago. Cisco will not provide any software updates any more.

ROMMON will get automatically upgraded when required.
