Well, historically Microsoft generally (there was the odd exception and the even odder accident) did not change user chosen settings during updates unless they warned you first that certain settings would be reset as a part of the process. I really doubt that this is going to change as a matter of practice.
Windows 10 is clearly still either in beta stage or "a work in progress" depending on your point of view and glitches will occur until it's actually entirely stable. I just hope that Microsoft either begins identifying what changes to user tweaked settings will result from this update as a part of the update or make fixes to the update that stop them from being made as they are identified.
The only thing on my system that might even tangentially be considered a privacy related setting that got reset was turning SmartScreen on again. The entire raft of other privacy related settings, most of which I switched off, stayed that way. If this behavior is not consistent then it really is incumbent on Microsoft to warn people about what they need to check again after the update.

. . . the presumption of innocence, while essential in the legal realm, does not mean the elimination of common sense outside it. The willing suspension of disbelief has its limits, or should.
