Did a quick search and didn't find answer.

I would think that answering a question is an "endorsement" of a question.

Should we also include that reminder in the guidelines?

    this might be a question for meta.stackoverflow.com ... – Afr Feb 10 '16 at 8:41

While I usually feel that a question that deserves my answer also deserves my upvote, the reverse is sometimes true as well.

E.g. that can be the case when a question is too specific to a single user, and therefore not useful towards building a comprehensive library of questions and answers, but I still want to help the user get an answer.

So, it doesn't automatically upvote, because you're supposed to evaluate whether it deserves an upvote. ;)
