Does anyone know in Windows 10 1903, how to stop the Office Live web shortcuts from being created in the Start Menu Live Tiles? Or a way to preemptively remove them?

Its a Tile that shows up in the Start Menu Live Tiles, that has the sub tiles: Outlook which goes to Outlook.office.com, Word which goes to Word.office.com, Excel which goes to Excel.office.com, and Powerpoint which goes to Powerpoint.office.com. If your using a offline account it then redirects you to Office.Live.com.

This seems to be new to Windows 10 1903, I've looked around and I have not seen a way to remove them? Or I'm missing something obvious?

Mount the image and remove (or edit) the file:
\Users\Default\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\Shell\DefaultLayouts.xml

I have edited the file and removed the lines with the links.
