I'm speaking from personal experience. I do A LOT of orders that are shipped via FedEx, probably 50 a month and more around the Holidays (for business). I've seen tracking numbers that say that the package data was transmitted to FedEx, and stay that way, then all of a sudden it was delivered and the status never changed until later that day.
Of course the tracking system is all automated like you say...but they're all ran by programs and servers and they tend to not perform as well under heavy loads and problems do happen. There may be a problem with the package but there may not be.
