It would seem, unusually, that Samsung has issued 2 different updates for the September release on their international Fold5 devices, F946B.

One appears to be for European CSC codes and is F946BXXU1AWI3 and includes the September security patch and undisclosed changes.

The non European devices are receiving build F946BXXS1AWI4 and is just the September security patch.

The only difference I have been able to detect between the European AWI3 update for the international Fold 5 devices, F946B, is that the baseband/modem has been updated to AWI3 along with the firmware and the non European devices have an older baseband/modem of AWG3. Compare screenshots in post #1 and below.
