Or a "feature" new to Fedora 33...and if so, should I adjust my automation to
move to a more distro agnostic method, like probing and parsing /etc/os-release within

but I don't really think there is anything in there that stands out.
This is probably related to the switch of the rpm database in F33 to sqlite:
