First let me say that I am on old man who gets things slowly nowadays.

Here is the window tag from my 2019 Wrangler Sport, and the results of the VIN Build list for it for comparison:

The window list says Rear Dana 44 and under options says 3rd Generation Dana solid axle. The VIN Build list says Dana 186 front axle but under optional, Dana M200 rear axle.

It's not a Rubicon, and it was a dealer leftover I bought last January just as the Virus struck so I took it as found and I don't expect much in capabilities.

What in Gods name do I have under there?

The D44 M220 is standard equipment, but is replaced by the M200 when you get the automatic transmission (unless you get the Limited Slip rear, diesel engine, High-Altitude trim, or a Rubicon). So since you have a gas-auto sport w/o LSD. You have the M200

Yep looks like M200. (Standard Eqpt is Manual and D220/Dana 44)
The Auto is not gonna shift abruptly as can be done with a Manual so they paired the HD axle with all manuals.

Well it might depend on where you have been wheeling. Maine forestland? Probably just a little mud, some bear, moose and deer poop.
Oh yeah, for sure ;) Ever see the ear ornaments that they make out of Moose Droppings?
