When you set the NEW TAB Page Location URL in GPO - Default Recommended, it Enforces it so users cannot change it?

That is NOT the point of Recommended. It should only be "let users change but set by default".

We can also confirm that these "Recommended" policies are being applied as "Mandatory".

 

This is even the case with build 83.0.478.56.
