I'm wondering, if i've selected the "Polling repository for changes" Build strategy in a Plan, do I still need to update my repo (git pull) in a step in my Jobs or has the Plan already done that for me since it has polled for changes?
Yes, you still need to update your repo (usually this is done by "Source Checkout Task") in a step in your Job. Polling is not enough.
However, you're right that "Polling repository for changes" is internally fetching remote git repo to the Bamboo server. But that internal repository is not automatically pushed down to the Job's working directory during build execution. Only by "Source Checkout Task" (or by manually crafted "Script Task" equivalent) the Job's working directory can be populated with the proper git repository and actual 'git checkout' can occur.
