In user Group policy - rights assignments I have a entry starting with “*S-1-5-21-9918795-2052802652” as a local security setting/Log on as a service  and I thought I read somewhere that could be a corrupt record or user. Can someone tell me if that is the case please?

So If I deleted a user from Active Directory it doesn't remove them from rights assignments?

Yes, it is safe to remove the entry.
The information stored/referenced are SIDs which is in the format you have when viewing data those entries are looked up and converted to the username, groupname, etc. When the account is deleted, you will only see the references.

This means that you have assigned the GPO to the specific user versus assigning to a group of which this user was a member.

At times using groups to which you add users is better than assigning individual users to GPOs.
