It's an optional update. The update you applied is not a general available (GA) release. Microsoft warns that these optional updates should not be installed on production even though they make them available via Windows Update.Really? I grabbed it from Update this morning.
I checked both my W11 Windows Updates and the update that includes SAC is not available; SAC install and activation (only in evaluation mode; not fully functional) requires a clean install of W11 or a clean reset (for my systems at least).
Optional Windows updates are always full of incomplete, unfinished business, especially in the area of security features. Heck, a significant portion of a stable release is not perfected, problem-free, without-issue code.
When it comes to Microsoft, it doesn't matter what users expect or demand. The Big M develops, corrects and releases according to its own whims, and not that of user expectations. That is how Microsoft has always operated. It has complete control over its market and therefore is not influenced much by user sentiment or wishes.
NOTE: If you have to select "Download & Install" an update listed in Windows Update, then that update is an optional update at various stages of development and build-out. Items are expected to be problematic.
