What exactly do you mean? MEM is a suite name and CM aka formerly (SCCM) does patching so..... What exactly re you looking for?
Have you reviewed the docs? https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/mem/

ConfigMgr is fully capable of deploying software updates to Windows Servers (and always has been). This is actively used by many customers. It's not called out in the documentation as it's no different than managing workstations and deploying software updates to them.

Intune cannot manage servers and therefore cannot deploy software updates to Windows Servers either.

As you patch client computers with SCCM/MECM you can also create diffrent "Automatic Deployment Rules" for servers.
You will "just" have to specify the different products (eg. Windows Server 2012 R2, Windows Server 2016 and so on) as you did/do when you create these rules for ordinary Windows 10 Client Computers.

I suggest you read up on "Software Update Management":
https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/mem/configmgr/sum/

There is just not one simple answer and "Do it like this", but there are some best practices which will guide/help you in doing what is right for your enviroment.
