Yes, I just blogged about this yesterday. MS changed the default from "Safely remove/Better performance" to "Quick Removal" with the introduction of 1809. You can also reset the policy from Disk Management to get "Safely remove" to show back up: 1809 Defaults to Quick Removal for External Storage Win10.Guru. See this April 3, 2019, MS Support Note for the inside scoop.
HTH,
