Indeed, it is derivative free and this property enables the usage of the Heisenberg picture which is based on time independent functions.
Thus, the time derivative included in these expressions prevents the usage of the Heisenberg picture.
Here, in the Heisenberg picture, wave functions of the Hilbert space are time independent.
