Roaming Profile & GPO & Security Group Interaction

I’ve set up roaming profiles (client insists) as per this doc: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-server/storage/folder-redirection/deploy-roaming-user-profiles and it works, but there’s something I don’t get.

Step 2 – Creating a security group. It seems like roaming profile should be created for any User that I put in this group regardless of what machine they are accessing, but it doesn’t work like that for me. In my environment roaming profiles are only applied if the User AND Computer are added to the security group.

Is there something wrong with my setup, or is this expected behaviour? If expected, why, what am I missing? It seems to me that the policy should apply to any object that is in that group, be it a user or a computer.

Thanks in advance.
