Let's see the fact I am typing this reply on "FreeBSD neomarx
12.1-RELEASE-p6 FreeBSD 12.1-RELEASE-p6 r362146 GENERIC  amd64" with a USB
keyboard and mouse via an external hub (and never seen that  message) is
proof enough it is fixed (with the same BIOS and processor class as
reported!).   Don't believe everything you read in bug reports.  Looking
through the bug it is clear that it was likely due to a faulty upgrade (or
pre-release 12.1) not due to an actual bug.
