[Standards] XEP-0191 leads to stale presence?

While working on a fix for Prosodys XEP-0191 implementation¹ regarding
presence sent to a blocked JID to pretend that the blocking user is
offline, and then re-send presence again if they unblock.

However, since if you block someone, your view of their presence will
become stale. The XEP does not say anything about this. Is it implied
that the server should send a presence probe or otherwise try to do
something about that?
