The connectivity of the e-sim can be disabled from the radio menu, but now I don't remember the position of the option.
I noticed that since I inserted the USB-C, if from the We Connect application I send the destinations to the mib3 they are no longer loaded.
I also saw some POIs that I didn't have before (Burger King icon etc ...)
Here's a link to a Skoda forum ... https://www.briskoda.net/forums/topic/4 ... ate-mib-3/
Some of the key posts are from 'batal' who is in Russia and says he has updated using the usb. He has no over the air (OTA) capability or connection to We Connect via eSIM and so his updates MUST be via the USB. Suggest you read the whole discussion thread.
Here's a link to the Australian forum post which Stitch referred to above. I assume Stitch was the author and the post immediately after that is by a second Australian owner who also reports updating using usb ...

Photos in these and other posts across different forums all seem to be showing the same Mib3 head unit software version (0270) shown in Buddy's pics.
I haven't made much use of downloading destinations to my Mib2 unit, but I seem to recall that once downloaded, they remained in My Destinations (under downloads ?) on the Sat Nav. I use a usb mobile wifi router in the car to provide an internet connection and I don't think my car can use its more limited eSIM for anything other than breakdown or emergency calls, but I don't think a live internet connection is required after downloading the destination. Mib3 may be different of course. It will not be possible to download new destinations without an internet connection, whetehr provided by a mobile wifi router or the enhanced eSIM used with Mib3.
As for new POIs, it seems that at least some, and perhaps many cars fitted with Mib3 units are being updated automatically in the background over the air. Unless you regularly check the map database version/date in your system information, these will most likely be unnoticed unless you spot a new road or a POI as in your case.
