It does?  I cannot reproduce this in "emacs -Q".  Could it be that you
have some optional package activated which does that?  If not, can you
show a recipe starting from "emacs -Q" that reproduces the behavior

This I can reproduce, and you can disable it by customizing
file-name-at-point-functions to a nil value.

The previous behavior of "C-x C-f RET" was considered confusing and
not very useful by many users, so I don't think we want to go back
