The table explaining UP/UV combinations at the end of https://fidoalliance.org/specs/fido-v2.0-id-20180227/fido-client-to-authenticator-protocol-v2.0-id-20180227.html#authenticatorGetAssertion (right before https://fidoalliance.org/specs/fido-v2.0-id-20180227/fido-client-to-authenticator-protocol-v2.0-id-20180227.html#authenticatorGetNextAssertion) may be helpful in considering this issue.  It says:

Flags | Meaning
-- | --
"up"=0 "uv"=0 | Silent authentication
"up"=1 "uv"=0 | Physical user presence verified, but no user verification
"up"=0 "uv"=1 | User verification performed, but physical user presence not verified (a typical "smartcard scenario")
"up"=1 "uv"=1 | User verification performed and physical user presence verified
