Yes it does, again, high security area, hence the disconnected environment. All systems must be supported.All software provided with security updates. If its EOL there is no path to the next product or support, so has to be replaced at a later date no matter what. Office 2019 and office 2016 support ends the same day.

This isn't working at home.

If you are concerned about security, the product needs to be actively supported, if its not it increases your exposure. Even with disconnected environments which I work with, you need to be concerned about updating as there are other avenues to retrieve the data. But to execute those avenues you still need to have a way to exploit it.
