Since 8.x-4.24 version, Bootstrap is automatically downloaded via composer and copied into vendors folder.
To copy dist files into libraries folder during installation, you can add the following 2 lines of script into your main composer.json file:

    "scripts": {
        "post-install-cmd": [
            "@composer drupal-scaffold"
        "post-update-cmd": [
            "@composer drupal-scaffold",
+           "mkdir -p web/libraries/bootstrap",
+           "cp -R vendor/twbs/bootstrap/dist web/libraries/bootstrap"

This will mantain your bootstrap version up to date when updating via composer.

Also, Bootstrap Libraries could be loaded by the Bootstrap Library module, this give you extra flexibility to load the library either via CDN or locally, choosing an up to date Bootstrap version regardless of the theme version.
