Mortgage company not required to report payments

Dear Experian,

I am a homeowner for five years now, and am wondering why my mortgage company does not have to report my mortgage to the three credit bureaus. I applied for a car loan and my bank told me that my home was not on any of the bureaus, so I did not need to include my mortgage payments to apply for any loans. Is this true?
