New UAKEL in 10.13.2 betas: Radar 1 Radar 2

Currently would prevent those devices added by, say, a QuickAdd in Jamf Pro, from being opted into SKEL environments. Has to be either a DEP device enrollment, or a user-permitted onboarding NOT via package, but by accepted Profile.
If you use both Jamf Pro QuickAdd AND Kernel Extensions, there is a bug to dupe because you may be affected.

Also new UAMDM

DEP will imply user acceptance
Any other method of enrolling a Mac will prompt end user for approval
