Yeah, future updates to the major browsers will remove support for plugins entirely.   Each of the major browsers has their own roadmap.  They're all linked to from the original Flash EOL email back in 2017. https://theblog.adobe.com/adobe-flash-update/

Bear in mind Microsoft may still issue more updates that specifically disable Flash in IE and/or Edge. These may not have been released yet, so it isn't a true test.

Ah, here is what Microsoft say about Flash EOL. Still short on actual detail, except "don't expect it to work". https://blogs.windows.com/msedgedev/2020/09/04/update-adobe-flash-end-support/
