Outlook for Windows is being upgraded to store its setting, including signatures, in Exchange Online mailboxes for Office 365 accounts. Essentially, the bulk of the settings controlled through Outlook options are stored in mailboxes and available to Outlook on all Windows PCs that an Office 365 signs into.

@Tony Redmond, this is great for organizations that use Exchange online. For those on-prem, I'm hoping Microsoft has updated ADMX templates that let us disable this setting via GPO.
