      The second screenshot says “Windows 10 Enterprise” – perhaps someone else is in control of his WSUS server and approved the 1909-enabling feature without further notification.

      I know that’s all my users would see… if they saw noticed anything at all.

Only then were two feature updates listed, with a (2) displayed immediately following the listing for the Windows feature update Version 1909.  (different anonymous) Windows 10 Home.
