InDesign trainer, consultant, and author, Steve Werner, on InDesign CC 2018 Endnote frames:
The endnote frame is a special kind of text frame. When the frame is selected, a special adornment on the bottom left indicates an endnote frame (Figure 1).  To see it, you must select the frame with the Selection tool and turn on Show Frame Edges.

Text in an endnote frame is placed between marker pairs. Text that is not an endnote—for example, a chapter number—can be placed outside of the marker pairs. The new adornment/icon in the lower-left corner of the frame indicates this is a special frame that contains endnotes.

By default, an endnote frame is created based on the scope of the document. This scope means that it includes all the endnotes in the document, and it is created on a new page at the end of the document. However, in Positioning Options (in the Endnote Options dialog box), you can set the scope to Story. In that case, a new endnote page will be created at the end of each story, and it will include endnotes only from that story. If you choose Story as the scope, you can alternatively choose Load the Place Cursor and place the endnote frame wherever you like.
