Yes, it looks like it began around the 4.8 era 
https://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=899269 shows that I 
was able to use this config with 4.7.4+dfsg-2, also it has another 
person reporting the same issue I was. Debian reported that they 
believed that bug was fixed in 4.9 but I'm not sure what I was using 
before my most recent upgrade.

I would guess I was using 4.7.4+dfsg-2 prior to my recent upgrade on the 
basis of that bug report above.

 From 2020-2022 or so because of the pandemic the usage of these 
machines was relatively low and this is the first time where we're doing 
substantial maintenance since start of the pandemic.
