Scrollback no longer working in tmux after update to 8.7.1

I always use tmux sessions connecting to my personal servers. Before 8.7.1 upgrade, the scrollback worked the same as in non-tmux sessions - right side scrollbar would gradually get smaller, i could drag it back to see previous content. Since 8.7.1, this no longer works - scrollbar no longer shrinks as content fills the buffer, so no seamless scrolling back.

This was a huge benefit for me, as the default virtual session scrollback handling always drove me nuts - to the point I just never used it.

I just had a look at the changelog, and see that there were some bugs fixed related to 'screen' - wondering if they're the reason I'm experiencing this...? Is there a setting in tmux I need to adjust?
