Since the current code is trying to save the point in the scan function,
it's better to keep that optimization.  See patch below.  Should this go
to emacs-27 or master?  The assumption that point would be preserved
seems to be long-standing, but I guess the change in the default of
switch-to-buffer-preserve-window-point is what surfaces the bug and
makes it more recent...

Subject: [PATCH] Don't lose point during fileloop replace (Bug#38867)

Suggested by Eric Michael Timmons <address@hidden>.
* lisp/fileloop.el (fileloop-initialize-replace): Save the
match-beginning position in a variable instead of the buffer's point.
The point may be changed by the time perform-replace is called, e.g.,
due to switch-to-buffer-preserve-window-point.
