The new supplemental update will bring macOS 10.14.6 to build 18G95.
Specifically, the new supplemental update aims to fix an issue where some Mac laptops would shut down during sleep mode, and it also resolves a performance issue when dealing with large files.

Curiously, the new supplemental update is labeled as “macOS Mojave 10.14.6 Supplemental Update” which is the exact same name the prior supplemental update had, providing a bit of software update deja vu. Nonetheless the first supplemental update carried build 18G87 while this new one brings macOS to build 18G95. Despite the confusion of sharing the same name (and the same package download URL), the supplemental updates are technically different, so even if you installed one a few weeks ago you’ll want to install the newly available supplement update as well.
