Same here (11.6.1 to 11.6.2 without problem) but with OpenCore 0.6.7.

The update went as smooth as my original MacBook Pro.
Haven't updated neither OC, neither the kexts.
Audio, Bluetooth and everything else works as expected.
The update went without issue using Software Update. Downloading, preparing, and three reboots later I was good to go using Clover r5142.

Smooth update for my Lenovo Z580 laptop (IvyBridge) from Software Update.
Updated Safari first.
Clover r5139, Whatevergreen v1.5-4, Lilu v1.5-6, AppleALC v1.6-5.
Everything working as before.
