Is there a way to somehow save and run the updates on a certain date?

Being a proxmox newbie, I have a basic question about the cluster update.

I updated a couple of test nodes to 7.4-1 a few weeks ago. The first few lines of the pveversion command shows this:
proxmox-ve: 7.4-1 (running kernel: 5.15.108-1-pve)
pve-manager: 7.4-15 (running version: 7.4-15/a5d2a31e)

However, I ran the command to update on one of the rest of the nodes yesterday, and I see that there has already been at least an update for the pve-manager. (ver 7.4-15 to 7.4-16)
proxmox-ve: 7.4-1 (running kernel: 5.15.108-1-pve)
pve-manager: 7.4-16 (running version: 7.4-16/0f39f621)

Is there a way to somehow save/lock and run the updates for a certain date, so that I can apply the same exact set of updates on all nodes?
Thank you in advance for any help!
We usually recommend our customers to disable automatic updates and only perform them during dedicated maintenance windows as a matter of good system administrator practices.
You can find details here:

Once the automatic update is disabled, you can then use cron to schedule "apt dist-upgrade" for a specific date or do it manually.

Actually, one quick question!
I see some conflicting info on threads/resource that suggest upgrading mon nodes first and then non-mon, and vice-a-versa.
Is there a right order? mon nodes first? Or non-mon first?
