Seems to me there are no Graphics extensions updated.

The nvidia drivers look for a specific compatible OS build number.

Maybe not but this is inside the Security Update:

Edit: System version of this update is 14C1514

Hmm, one of the dylib's has "coretls" in the name, could be related to the OpenSSL security flaws announced recently?
