The stg.fp.o website is updated hourly. In fact, it should be updated
at about 5 minutes past the hour.

Export regulations is purposely not translated. This is for a legal reasons [1].

I looked at the ja.po file and it is translated. I just looked at the
stg.fp.o website and its showing in japanese. The text may have been
translated just after the last update. On a side note, there are 46
languages and only 11 have that specific text translated.

I look at the files and we've somehow missed making that text
translatable. :( This includes the Formats, Architectures, Desktops,
Activities tabs along with the other pieces of text you've mentioned.
We could add it but it will definitely break the current string freeze
in effect.
