No, the only place where "later" is mentioned in the GPL-3 is section 14
(Revised Versions of this License) which only applies when the program
explicitly states that later versions may be used.
The word "later" also appear in the "How to Apply These Terms to Your
New Programs" part of the GPL, but that just explains how authors can
use the license, it's not part of the GPL terms and condition. There's
even a "END OF TERMS AND CONDITIONS" marker above it.
