- Radeon RX Vega Series graphics products may experience elevated memory clocks during system idle.
- Radeon Software update notifications may sometimes incorrectly list the currently installed driver as an available software update.
You're good in copy and pasting information from the website. However, nowhere is clearly stated that 18.9.3 is recommended over 18.10.1.
Look at the package content:
- Radeon Software Adrenalin Edition 18.10.1 Driver Version 18.40.03.01 (Windows Driver Store Version 25.20.14003.1012)
- Radeon Software Adrenalin Edition 18.9.3 Driver Version 18.30.19.01 (Windows Driver Store Version 24.20.13019.1008)
Clearly the 18.10.1 is the newer version, based solely on the numbers provided.
Without any specific notification that 18.9.3 supersedes 18.10.1 I suspect AMD does something wrong in their driver release proces. Something like a previous fork that makes it to final (exit optional/beta status) is accidentally reported as the latest recommended. While in fact it's a valid driver it's not necessarily your 'new recommended'.
If the 18.9.3 truly is the successor or improvement over 18.10.1 in this particular case. AMD should specifically mention in the release notes, that this version (18.9.3) replaces 18.10.1.

Showing the 'Recommended' driver is not a bug, it is an advisory of the WHQL driver available. Maybe the word 'new' should be removed from the description ?
As for you getting daily reminders, not sure about that(never had it). I use custom install option and uncheck any ref. to updates.
not sure if it is a bug or anything else. I am asking because I seriously don't know what it is that.
I am on 18.10.1 because this was the last update I did in August and never, never in my life heard of "rollback to previous version" called 'Recommended' or even "new" as the radeon says, this are 3 different words with very but very different meaning.
Anyway since is the first time that this happens, I was worried about this poltergeist.
goodplay I always uninstall previous and install the new WHQL, instead of upgrading via app menu
Not sure if it's bug, the same show me when i check on driver updates I have the 18.9.3 installed and the 18.11.2 optional.
For you the 18.9.3 is recomended because the most combatible with your graphic card and the 18.10.1 in the curent state may give some bug and glitches to the performance of the graphic card.
