That sounds like a strawman.  Sane businesses will do what banks
do these days and have words saying "We will never send you a link"
or similar.

"You have 28 days to correct this or your domain name will be removed.
Please login into you account and fix it.

$REGISTRAR will never ask you to click on a link via email."

so their customers can detect when they are being phished.  Yes
phishing is a threat but one which all businesses should be aware
of and should be taking steps to see that their customers are not
exposed by their correspondence.

If the registry was to do send the messages it would be something like

... Please contact $REGISTRAR to update your records.
