This hack for putting volta brackets at a fixed y-position doesn't
work anymore. What is the current incantation?

 \override Staff.VoltaBracket #'Y-offset-callbacks = #(list 
 \override Staff.VoltaBracket #'staff-position = #10

try #'Y-offset = #10

No, that's not the trick. The documentation says that is the movement
relative to the x-parent, so I still need to set a fixed parent to get
all brackets at the same Y-position.

that's a typo, obviously.  Y-offset is relative to the Y-parent.

all brackets have the same parent, the VerticalAxisGroup for the Staff.
Your original code is equivalent to

 #'Y-offset = #(* staff-space-for-this-staff 0.5 10)
