The issue did not get fixed with the November update. On bleeping computer today these registry keys where posted by user grumpyoldadmin. And should fix the issue.

Windows 10 2004, 20H2, 21H1 and 21H2:

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

Windows 10 1909:

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

Windows 10 1809 and Windows Server 2019:

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

I tried it on my Windows 10 1809 LTSC workstation and at first it did not work. Did abit more research and in 1809 / 1909 an additional step is neccesarry before the reboot an task must run.
Can be done with this onelinier in powershell with elevated rights:

Get-ScheduledTask -TaskName "ReconcileFeatures" | Start-ScheduledTask

Did another reboot and now connection to printmanagement and printing is working again using an local user account. Also the NTLMv2 spool auth request went away.
