That is rather peculiar! Perhaps a remnant from the upgrade to Mojave?
 
Could you try rebooting the machine completely to see if this helps? Otherwise, try uninstalling the app and then re-installing it.

Re-installing Dropbox App fixed the problem for me on macOS.

Try doing an advanced reinstall since this will remove all settings related to Dropbox on your machine.

Same problem after advanced reinstall.

When you reinstall Dropbox you get two entries in the notification center. One with "Alerts" and the other with "Banners".

Just to check, did you reboot your machine between uninstalling and reinstalling the app?
 
If not, could you try that again to see if this clears the notification option.

I have the same issue on a brand-new Mac that came with Mojave installed, so I don't think it has to do with upgrade remnants. I also have the same with Google Chrome. In both cases, one is "alerts" and the other is "banners".
