Microsoft supports creating an offline installer of Windows 10 from a DVD or a USB flash drive, using the Media Creation Tool.

Does the Media Creation Tool bundle Windows Updates -- installed on the media-creating PC -- into the offline media it creates?

In other words, if Windows Update A01 is installed on my PC, and I create offline media on that same PC, then use that media to install Windows on another PC, will the other PC already have Update A01?

The short answer is no, the Media Creation Tool will NOT bundle Windows Updates -- installed on the media-creating PC -- into the offline media it creates. This would be 'slip-streaming' but all the Media Creation Tool does is make the DVD/USB media bootable for the offline Windows 10 ISO file.
