Thanks for reporting this.

I am annoyed that this is yet another change with no mention in NEWS.
The manual is currently incorrect about this.

The relevant discussion seems to be here:

As usual, it has zero relation to the subject of the thread it is in.

At least, there needs to be a new value for blink-matching-paren to
bring back the old behaviour. And the documentation needs to be updated.

It seems like blink-matching-paren is now more similar to show-paren-mode.
