I would probably hide it

Unless you have anything left over from 2007, Project or Visio for example.

it could also have been triggered by an add-on designed for 2007 that's reporting incorrectly

Technically, applying the update should just throw an exception stating does not apply to your system, but hiding is often the best way as it has no potential side effects

You stated you used to have Office 2007. Chances are that a few registry entries or files got left behind when it was removed, resulting in Windows Update mistakenly thinking you still had it.
