According to etc/ORG-NEWS, org-tempo.el was introduced in Org 9.2.
Unfortunately the section doesn’t refer the change of convention.

Why the convention is changed in org-tempo?

I'm a bit hazy about this, but I believe that org-tempo got introduced after this commit: https://code.orgmode.org/bzg/org-mode/commit/13424336a6f30c50952d291e7a82906c1210daf0

This was a few years ago. There was even a discussion thread on this list that showed preference to make that change.
