Currently rolled out to 23 CSC codes in the Middle and Far East and parts of Europe.
Keep checking to see if it has been released for your device's CSC code.

It would seem, unusually, that Samsung has issued 2 different updates for the September release on their international Fold5 devices, F946B.
One appears to be for European CSC codes and is F946BXXU1AWI3 and includes the September security patch and undisclosed changes.
The non European devices are receiving build F946BXXS1AWI4 and is just the September security patch.

The only difference I have been able to detect between the European AWI3 update for the international Fold 5 devices, F946B, is that the baseband/modem has been updated to AWI3 along with the firmware and the non European devices have an older baseband/modem of AWG3. Compare screenshots in post #1 and below.

Currently. 15th September, 16.00hrs, nothing more has been released for the European Fold5 devices, F946B, other than the regional update for Europe on CSC code EUX and another for Italy on CSC TIM.
Nothing specific for the U.K. carrier branded devices on EVR has been released.

At last! 😁
After 8 days since the release of the September update on the European release, Samsung have begun to push out the carrier branded September firmware for the U.K..
This is for EE carrier branded devices on CSC code EVR. See post #1 to see how to check if it is available for you.
