Can Qualys Agent differentiate between Office and Office O365?

We have computers with Cloud Agent - particularly OS X systems - that get alert  QID 110327 which lists the version as 16.16.6 and says updates are missing. 


For MS Office with O365 16.21.0 (19011500) is current but for the version without O365 version 16.16.6 (190114) is still the latest.

Office + O365 version

Update history for Office for Mac | Microsoft Docs 


Plain Office

Release notes for Office 2016 for Mac | Microsoft Docs 


Is it possible the QID is being incorrectly generated because the Agent thinks that it is the O365 version rather than the plain nonO365 version?


Can the Agent tell these versions apart? I can't find any updates that apply despite the QID.
