I investigate :)

perldoc -v "%+"

tells me %LAST_PAREN_MATCH is implemented using Tie::Hash::NamedCapture, so a hop skip and a jump to to see what changed, a quick correlation with corelist, but nothing changed there since v5.13.11


The history did mention moving the implementation of %+ into XS, so checking perl5160delta for XS I see a bunch of changes, but nothing I think could cause this behaviour

I will note that trying to Dumper \%+ or \%- outside of get_words_* returns empty -- so its definitely scope related (perhaps pad related)

Next thing I checked is "capture", but #78266: Memory leak with named regexp captures doesn't seem related

Next I notice Tied Variables but nothing jumps out

I don't think this is documented anywhere, and I suspect it hasn't been discovered and fixed intentionally -- you should submit (perlbug) the test case for inclusion into

update: Forgot to search for %+, I found #105024: UNIVERSAL::AUTOLOAD breaks named captures/%-/%+, which could be responsible for fixing this, but Devel::Trace doesn't show any autoload / UNIVERSAL::AUTOLOAD
