Yes to the file question (the update post hook is working in the same file).
Regarding the other question, there are definitely ACF fields in the page that I’m updating. However, interestingly enough, if I try to error_log the $_REQUEST or $_POST arrays in the post_updated hook I have set up, all I get is something like user_locale.
