 > By default, when using a child theme, the `style.css` is loaded from the
 child theme automatically by core

 It's not Core that does it, it's the parent theme being child-theme aware
 and enqueuing `get_stylesheet_uri()` rather than using
 `get_template_directory_uri()` with a path to their stylesheet. Consider
 it a service to make it as easy as possible to make small changes via a
 child theme.

 > When you do enqueue it, you end up loading your child theme `style.css`
 twice. This point was made by @parsmizban 2 years ago. This is why I
 pursued a fix for this.

 Correct, you'll want to dequeue the parent's stylesheet in that case.
