Tab drag and drop new window doesn't fullscreen

Description of the issue:
Since about 1 or 2 weeks now, I can’t drag a tab away from the other tabs, release it in the middle of the screen, so it opens a new instance of brave on fullscreen.
Now it creates a new window, but in windowed mode.

Steps to Reproduce:

  1. Open a brave window with 2 or more tabs;
  2. Drag a tab out of the top, so that it shows a new window;
  3. Release in the middle of the screen;

Actual Result:
The dropped tab becomes a new window, in windowed mode.

Expected result:
The dropped tab becomes a new window, in fullscreen mode.

Reproduces how often:
Every time I drag and drop.

Operating System and Brave Version(See the About Brave page in the main menu):
Version 1.38.115
Chromium 101.0.4951.64 (Official Build) (64-bit)

I have the same issue on macOS.

Yeah, really weird ah?

Same here and been so for a while. Must be a bug since it wasn’t like this in the past. It can’t possibly be intentional. Hoping for a fix in the next update.
