Extended Events captures extra Execute events

Due to differences in how Microsoft has implemented Extended Events compared to other auditing methods, when auditing via Extended Events the user will see extra Execute events as compared to the same data captured by other auditing methods.

NOTE

  • The Extended Events auditing feature is only available with SQL Server 2012 and newer. 
  • The Audit Logs auditing feature is only available with SQL Server 2017 and newer.
