I think that you may refer to InnoDB page flushing. There was some
misunderstanding around that, and indeed some partly unintended or
uninformed changes in behaviour (in 10.5.7 and 10.5.8) that were
reverted later. It could be useful to read

In MariaDB Server 10.6, the InnoDB locking was refactored. Thanks to
that, the Galera cluster hang
