What is Dynamic Update for Windows 10 for x64-based Systems ?

I have two Windows 10 PCs.
One is connected to the Internet and is automatically updated with Windows Update, while the other must be used for offline only.
In this case, the two PCs have the same software installed, and there is no difference except whether they are online or not.

Offline PCs take updates downloaded from the Microsoft Update catalog via an external recording medium and apply them manually.
(https://www.catalog.update.microsoft.com/)

Based on this, my question is as follows.

The microsoft update catalog contains an update called "Dynamic Update for Windows 10".
What was recently released was "KB5007324".
(https://support.microsoft.com/en-gb/topic/kb5007324-compatibility-update-for-installing-and-recovering-windows-10-version-2004-20h2-21h1-and-21h2-november-22-2021-9bb7d898-8d47-4341-82cd-ec53c300feee)

This is not downloaded and installed on Internet-connected PCs that have Windows Update automatic updates enabled.
There was also no history of "Dynamic Update for Windows 10" being installed in the past.

I'm wondering if I should install "Dynamic Update for Windows 10" in manual updates to offline PC.

Why doesn't "Dynamic Update for Windows 10" be installed on your Internet connection PC?
If we understand that, we believe that this will be the basis for judging in this case.

Hello

Thank you for your question and reaching out.


Dynamic Update can help organizations and end users alike ensure that their Windows 10 devices have the latest feature update content (as part of an in-place upgrade)—and preserve precious features on demand (FODs) and language packs (LPs) that may have been previously installed. Further, Dynamic Update also eliminates the need to install a separate quality update as part of the in-place upgrade process.

Dynamic Update refresher :
As soon as a Windows 10 feature update initiates, whether from media or a Windows Update service-connected environment, Dynamic Update is one of the first steps invoked. Windows 10 Setup reaches out to an Internet-facing URL hosted by Microsoft to fetch Dynamic Update content, then applies those updates to your OS installation media.

Hello.
Thank you for your answer.

I understood as follows.
Dynamic Update is a feature for Windows 10 to automatically retrieve the latest update content.
Dynamic Update refresher is updates to a feature called this dynamic update.

I thought that the dynamic update function would be something that uses the Internet, so I thought that updating dynamic updates was unnecessary on offline PC.
However, I referred to the URL you taught me, but I don't know why this doesn't show up in the update history in Windows Update of the Internet connection PC.
Why on earth is this?

That said, it was very helpful to know what dynamic updates are.
Thank you again for your advice.

(If there is an error in my understanding, it would be very helpful to point it out.)

Hello.
Dynamic Update is only used for fixes that are needed as part of the setup process, to ensure that Windows can be upgraded successfully.
there are only a small number of fixes that ever make it into Dynamic Update.
Examples would be something that crashed Windows setup before it completes,
An update to properly migrate settings or data that could be lost during an upgrade.
These are fixes that need to be in place prior to setup completing

Hello.
Thank you for writing a comment.

We've come to think that dynamic update updates don't require installation.
We have decided not to install this for the time being.

Thank you again for your advice.
