Spontaneously upgraded from Office 2016 H&B to 365 Premium for ‘Grace Period’..?


I arrived to my office to see an update in progress. Upon completion, Excel looked strangely similar to my Office 365 version on my personal laptop. I ran cscript ospp.vbs /dstatus, and I see two sections with two Product ID’s: One says ‘Office16HomeBusinessR_Retail3 edition’, with the last 5 digits of my license that match up to my account page. The second section says ‘Office160365HomePremR_Grace edition’, with ‘REMAINING GRACE: 4 days’. I never signed up for this, or received any notification! When I hit Account, it still reads ‘Product Activiated: Microsoft Office Home & Business 2016’. No mention of 365 anywhere. Has anyone else experienced this?
