automatic (trigger Start) - Investigate what the trigger is

I noticed today that a Windows 10.0.16299 machine had the Windows Update service startup type set to 'automatic (trigger Start).
I wanted to look deeper at what the trigger is, so run that command that suggested a GP is set.   However, this is a standalone machine, not joined to any localad or azuread.
When I look at local group policy -> all settings -> sort list asc/dsc all settings report as 'not configured' for both user and machine.

How can I investigate what these two 'triggers' are ?
