I think that it depends upon the renovation status of the bathroom as to what is required to be replaced, since there are houses and apartments with original bathrooms that may not even have an an electrical outlet in the bathroom, which is not up to the current building code. A GFCI plug is not terribly difficult to have installed, such that a management company may opt only to have that type of outlet installed, regardless of code, as do many home owners. Even in an older home, that's something I would not avoid when having new electrical receptacles installed.
For an existing standard outlet in a "wet" location, there are GFCI adapters that can be used to make the plugs much safer, without changing the receptacles. This would function similarly to hair dryers that have this type of plug, but would cover everything plugged into the wall.
All the world's a stage, and all the men and women merely players: they have their exits and their entrances; and one man in his time plays many parts, his acts being seven ages.
