My organization recently installed Office 2016 on a few computers.  We have always used WSUS to deploy all Windows and Office updates, but what I have noticed is that in the Office 2016 installations users will get a yellow update bar to run the updates themselves even though these workstations are pointing to our WSUS server for all updates.  This is also not part of Office 365 at all; just a basic Office 2016 Pro installation.  

Is this behavior by design, and if so, is there a way to force Office 2016 to only look for updates via WSUS instead of online through Microsoft so users don't have to manually run the update themselves and never get prompted like all other prior versions of Office?  

Thank you
