Looks like this impacts Fedora as well, I can repro it on Fedora 34, 35 and on Rawhide. Filed https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=2008979 to track it there.

Comment 2 Davide Cavalca 2021-09-29 15:58:23 UTC
And this also repros on CentOS Stream 9 so filed https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=2008983 for that

Comment 3 Davide Cavalca 2021-09-29 19:46:40 UTC
We have backported the Fedora fix for this (https://src.fedoraproject.org/rpms/jq/pull-request/4) in https://cbs.centos.org/koji/buildinfo?buildID=35237 for Hyperscale, you can see the branch here in case it helps: https://git.centos.org/rpms/jq/c/f116ff5a7250bc9a9a6d42b7670aff28a99755c8?branch=c8s-sig-hyperscale
