--- Comment #17 from Jose Luis Duran <jlduran@gmail.com> ---
I guess I will close this one as not a bug.

This was a deliberate change in OpenSSH
and a few other commits).

Let's use the non-portable version (OpenBSD 7.2, OpenSSH 9.1):

Edit /etc/syslog.conf and uncomment the line:

    *.err;auth.notice;authpriv.none;kern.debug;mail.crit        /dev/console

As the comment says: "be aware that this could create lots of output".

At this point it will exhibit the same behavior.

FreeBSD ships with this line uncommented, that's why it is more perceptible.
