There are actually very few exclusive updates... but there are definitely updates that have to reboot before all other updates are done and can take several "rounds" of reboots to complete all, especially if you are only patching once a month. Currently patch manager is working on a "patch until its done" system but for now I just have my machines patching every day once approved (which I do on fridays) and then servers on saturdays. If servers still need more installed I may do them manually monday morning.

If you go to an update view for your WSUS server in the Patch Manager console (like "All updates" or "Security Updates", etc...) there is a column for the list of updates there that can be filtered/grouped/sorted on called Is Exclusive.
