confirmed. I can repro. the bug. I updated to 7.5 yesterday and can see the inconsistency. Additionally, I don't have the option to use wayland session.

Thanks for confirmation, regarding the wayland session, can you please confirm that you have gnome-session-wayland-session.x86_64 package installed ?
