Similar at GNU Emacs 24.5.1.

Are you sure that the culprit is the (show-paren-mode) ?

M-x describe-mode ps-mode said

>               ps-mode-r-gt
]               ps-mode-r-angle
}               ps-mode-r-brace

(defun ps-mode-r-brace ()
  "Insert `}' and perform balance."
  (insert "}")
  (ps-mode-r-balance "}"))

So it seems like you need overwrite or disable or make something other
with ps-mode-r-brace. For instance (add to .emacs):

(defun my-ps-mode-r-brace ()
  (self-insert-command 1))

(add-hook 'ps-mode-hook
          (lambda () (local-set-key (kbd "}") 'my-ps-mode-r-brace)))
