Strange WSUS update alert dated May 24, 2022.

Windows[German]Blog reader Markus K. contacted me yesterday morning by mail and described a strange observation. On his WSUS instances 45 new update notifications from WSUSE for Windows 10 20H2 to 21H2 have arrived on May 24, 2022, but they belong to updates from previous months. I'll post the observation here on the blog – maybe someone knows more.

Markus wrote (I've translated it): "für for me it would be interesting to know why the updates were renewed. So far I haven't found anything."

The links directs to old update descriptions. My question if the metadata had been updated, if applicable, was answered by Markus K. with "Superseeded that from 11-2021. Seems really completely new to me and not just metadata update." Anybody of you there have any idea/information why the updates are provided? Refreshed update packages?
