Should I put details about my current role on LinkedIn (I.e. bullets describing what I did)? Will people from my company/team get mad about it (I am LinkedIn friends with them)? Or is that not a good idea, especially since my bullet points are a little exaggerated (not lying, but makes it seem much better than it is if you knew my project)...

You are fine updating linkedin profile as you go. Just don't put client details and don't exaggerate your work (you can save those for resume lol, just summarize your work for linkedin)

I never put bullet points. I’m just lazy. If they want to know what I do they can ask for a resume

If your bullets have a few key words for recruiters, add them. Otherwise just summarize.
