AI is advancing rapidly. RA Managers primarily review documentation, which is a skill AI is great at, especially fact-based reviews.

Regulatory Affairs is primarily about reviewing, compiling, and formatting documentation, and cross-referencing against other documents. AI is also great ay reviewing regulations and guidance documents and summarizing/analyzing them. These are skills that AI (a form of automation) is progressively getting better at. While review of AI generated documents might be needed in the short-term, in the long-term, even that can be replaced.
