On December 19, 2018, Canon reached a new production milestone of 140 million EF lenses*, reinforcing its position as the world's highest-volume manufacturer of interchangeable lenses. True to the development concept of the EOS Series established in 1987.

*Including EF-S, EF-M, RF lenses and EF Cinema lenses

Seeming that milestone was 57 days ago it is safe to assume that the 140 million EF lenses could solely be attributed to lenses related to the EF mount rather than RF lenses.

They could have just said "EOS" lenses. That would include EF, EF-S, MP-E, TS-E, EF-M, RF, and PE - you may have never heard of them, but they do exist, although they've never been listed in a public Canon catalog. If I told you where I'd seen one I'd then have to kill you. :)
