    I know that is the theory but it not what happens to me. If I make clean install of a new VM it is automatically activated. Because my underlying system is activated? Who knows.

    Windows 10 x86 14383 Insider Pro and Core 10240

    As you say, who knows. Is it because that instance of a Virtualization host has already had an activated Win 10, and is therefore registered with Microsoft for Win 10 activation?
    Perhaps windows 10 is not yet enforcing this:
    Device. In this agreement, “device” means a hardware system (whether physical or virtual) with an internal storage device capable of running the software. A hardware partition or blade is considered to be a device.
    - because users are, for the present, or perhaps for the month after installation, considered as "Insiders", or as running Windows 10 as trial software?
