    The user can still login using a local account, even if the machine is Azure AD Joined. Thus what you are describing above is normal/expected. Make sure they login via the AzureAd\username or user@keyman .com (Microsoft ID) format.

    Hi there,

    Windows 10 devices that are hybrid Azure AD joined don't show up under USER devices. Use the All devices view in the Azure portal. You can also use a PowerShell Get-MsolDevice cmdlet.

    Only the following devices are listed under USER devices:

    All personal devices that aren't hybrid Azure AD joined.
    All non-Windows 10 or Windows Server 2016 devices.
    All non-Windows devices.

    You can refer to these forums to get more info regarding this
