In general, apt-get {dist-,}upgrade will never advise installing new kernels. It will install new kernels automatically if you have the linux-image-ARCHNAME metapackage for your architecture installed; if you don't have that metapackage installed (e.g. because you compile your own kernels), then new kernels (other than minor upgrades of the currently installed kernel version, if you're using a packaged kernel) will only be installed if you explicitly install them.
