Anyone else notice these "Load Config Partial" syntax changes in PAN-OS 9.0?

Doing my first migration to PAN-OS 9.0.  We've migrated the config using expedition, but when I try to use the load config partial commands I keep getting a "Invalid syntax." error


Example on how it used to work- 


load config partial from MT-fixed.xml from-xpath /config/devices/entry/vsys/entry/tag to-xpath /config/devices/entry/vsys/entry/tag mode merge


I can get it to work if I change the syntax slightly to -


load config partial mode merge from-xpath /config/devices/entry/vsys/entry/tag to-xpath /config/devices/entry/vsys/entry/tag from MT-fixed.xml


I'm just curious if anyone else has run into this issue?  I can't find any documentation around changes to the load config partial  in PAN-OS 9.0 so I can't explain why it has suddenly changed its behavior.

From is now the hard stop in a load config partial command and you won't be able to specify anything after this entry, similar to the profile-setting entry when creating a security rulebase entry from the CLI. Not sure why they decided to change it with 9.0 or if it was even actually intended.
