Aha! So if you use Smart Update, it still works even though the target volume is empty - and it preserves your existing APFS volume which was earlier encrypted with a unique passphrase. Whereas if you use Erase then Copy, it replaces your encrypted APFS volume with a non-encrypted APFS volume.

That certainly makes sense and is very logical! I will give it a go and see if it works!
