Is the size of this update really correct ? I checked online and it should be 252.1 MB. I used Get-Windowsupdate and it shows that KB5019980is 128 gb? Does anyone know the reason for this ?

I see this all the time with PSWindowsUpdate. No clue is it’s the fault of the module or the Windows APIs it uses. Far as I can tell it’s purely cosmetic and not problematic for the actual update installs.
It's certainly not the module. I've coded my own update script using the COM+ api and it's pretty common for updates to be flagged with their maximum possible size.

You can verify actual size from the Update Catalogue link shared by @upnorth
