Yes that helps heaps!

Thank you for the clarification! :)

FWIW, this config has served us pretty well for ~10 years to only
install security updates. But it seems that luck may have been a
significant factor!

With this info, we'll certainly need to reconsider how we do things as
our current config was based on an incorrect understanding of security
update "policy".

Thanks again...
