WordPress Updates come in three types: Minor, Major, and Developmental.

Minor updates contain two parts: Security and Maintenance.

There are filters that can control types of updates including Minor. See:

As Minor Updates come in two parts there should be a filter that lets users get the security updates or maintenance updates of a minor update.

Essentially, add two additional filters to the minor update. One for security and one for maintenance.

Some agencies offer a Manual WordPress Update Service as doing a manual update helps to catch issues that happen after an update. As security updates are unlikely to result in issues, the maintenance aspect can be disabled while permitting the security updates.

This isn't something that is feasible since branches may have security releases after maintenance releases and many security releases are also maintenance releases.
