Also if there is no automated transition with dietpi-update, by staying in Stretch will i still be getting dietpi version updates?

yes Stretch is still supported with DietPi scripts. However it could happen that Debian software packages will not be updated anymore. But this is out of DietPi control as DietPi is taking care on their own scripts only.
Pls let us know if a solution is working. This could help others if they hit by similar situation. Your DietPi Team

But when DietPi builds on Stretch switches to Buster and its upgraded programs (ex: NAA 3.60 on Strech and 4.1.1 on Buster) ? ;)

well that's a pure functionality of Debian. Changing the source list to Buster will lead to update all available packages the the buster version as well.
