AutoSSL for hostname, localhost, postfix, etc...

How does renewal for these certificates work? I received the following warning from certwatch...

Code: [Select]
################# SSL Certificate Warning ################

 Certificate for hostname 'my.hostname.com', in file (or by nickname):
    /etc/pki/tls/certs/localhost.crt

 The certificate needs to be renewed; this can be done
 using the 'genkey' program.

 Browsers will not be able to correctly connect to this
 web site using SSL until the certificate is renewed.

I'm aware that localhost.crt is a self-signed certificate I can update via openssl in CLI, but I'm curious why it doesn't update automatically and how/if other server certs such as hostname and postfix are updated. Are they updated automatically?
