This is a partial listing of my ESP which is used for booting
Windows10, and of /boot (which is part of / here). Could you elaborate
on which permission/ownership information is missing in either.

AFAIK, the kernel image, the initramfs and boot loader specific files (such as GRUB config and modules) do not need any special permissions. These files are used only by the boot loader, which ignores permissions. They are not used during the Linux kernel operation. A FAT filesystem can be mounted with options which set permissions to prevent write by any standard user.
