After update to v79.1.1.23 "255.255.255.255"appears in uMatrix column XHR (for all sites)

And now in order to login to AOL webmail must allow 255.255.255.255 in column XHR.

In addition, all sites, as well, now show 255.255.255.255 in uMatrix column XHR.

255.255. 255.255 is a special broadcast address, which means “this network”: it lets you send a broadcast packet to the network you’re connected to, without actually caring about its address; in this, is similar to 127.0. 0.1, which is a virtual address meaning “local host”.

Re. XHR https://github.com/gorhill/uMatrix/wiki/The-popup-panel#the-type-cells:

Would like to understand what this means, and why this behavior has begun only after the update to the 79.1.1.23. What does this mean for Brave???
