Yes, if I comment out the line "(not show-paren-mode)" in the function blink-matching-open, I observe the same thing. During the short time that the point is temporarily moved to the correct matching paren, the old/previous highlighted parens are still visible. If they could be updated before the jump rather than after, then the problem would be solved. But as you say, that would require more changes to the code. To be honest, the execution paths in this piece of code is not obvious to me, so I'm rather puzzled where to begin...

Did you try to remove the condition that show-paren-mode is active?
When I try that, I see an unpleasant effect: when blink-matching-paren
jumps off-screen, the wrong opening parenthesis is highlighted
(although the jump is to the right place).

So allowing jump-offscreen and show-paren-mode to coexist will need
more changes than just removing the condition.
