Photoshop CC 2019: Changing layer style stroke opacity renders differently from prior versions

In CC2019 v 20.0.3 there appears to be an issue with layer styles stroke.

To replicate:
Make an empty layer
Add a solid brush stroke say 200 px wide
Go to layer styles and add a stroke with size of 50px position inside and normal blend mode.

Reduce the opacity. As the opscity is reduced, the stroke cuts into the pixels on the pixel layer - revealling transparency - all the way down to 1%.
However when the stroke is reduced to 0% opacity the pixels reappear.

CC2018 works correctly

I am using Windows 10 v 1809 and NVidia graphics GTX1080 driver 417.71
Use legacy compositing makes no difference to this issue

This issue should be fixed in the current version, Photoshop 2020 v21.x or later. Let us know if you're still having trouble.

Yes, the same issue.
Windows 7

Here is the picture to understand the bug. 0% of Opacity and stroke disappears.

Thanks for the great steps and illustrations. I've reproduced the behavior and asked engineering to take a look.
