The answer is yes. This was one of things Corrine and I had on a laundry list, if you clicked through with recommenced settings upon install it's on. 

You can turn it off, start, settings, update and security, windows update, advanced options, choose how updates are delivered. You can turn it off ot share with your pc on your local network. MS says it's safe, but I see it as a P2P software.

It is referred to as WDOP, Windows Update Delivery Optimization and can be easily changed.  There is an advantage for households with multiple computers to use the "PCs on your local network option".  That way, the updates will be downloaded to one family computer and shared to the remainder of the family.

Windows Update uses information obtained securely from Microsoft to validate the authenticity of files downloaded to your PC. Delivery Optimization also checks the authenticity of each part of an update or app that it downloads from other PCs before installing it.
