I cannot reproduce that.

Both in emacs 21.3 and 22.1 filling of fields is done only if
bibtex-entry-format includes also the option realign, i.e., you need
a line like the folliwng in your .emacs

(setq bibtex-entry-format '(opts-or-alts numerical-fields realign))

When I do that, I get the same filling you got with emacs 21.3.

Have you tried to reproduce the unintended behavior with
"emacs --no-init-file" and evaluating the above BibTeX settings in
the *scratch* buffer? As you noticed, the real work of filling is
now done by fill-region-as-paragraph, whereas emacs 21.3 used
do-auto-fill. Maybe you have some personal customizations that affect
the behavior of these general functions.
