Ubuntu Budgie creates a new 500MB partition

I’ve just recently installed Ubuntu Budgie 20.04 and I noticed a new 500MB partition. I had selected the option to delete all files and install afresh and I’ve never seen this before.

Have a look at the attached image.

Any pointers?

From a terminal, whats output of:lsblk -f

Below is the output of the command:

That 500MB partition is for the UEFI partition. I have set mine to 100MB. Some distros need 500MB to operate.
