On Windows, it's stored in the registry so you can use a Windows logon script to set the preference. On OSX it would be in a plist somewhere and that makes it harder to set.

properties in plists are easily set from the shell with the defaults command;
you need to know the reverse domain for the app as well as the name of the
key(s) you want to set
for 12 Advanced, the domain is com.filemaker.client.advanced12 (found by
looking through ~/Library/Preferences)
knowing that, you can see all the data in the plist with this command:
defaults read com.filemaker.client.advanced12
these two keys look like the update and version checks dates:
New Version Notification:CheckDate
you'll need to figure out how the date values are stored, but this is how you'd
read one of the values
defaults read com.filemaker.client.advanced12 "Update Notification:CheckDate"
result on my machine: -862570317
and this is how you'd change it (only write when the app is not running, else
the values may be rewritten as FileMaker quits):
defaults write com.filemaker.client.advanced12 "Update Notification:CheckDate" -862570318
