Others have experienced this, too, see

Moving a Layer will leave a shadow if »Legacy Compositing« is checked. (Photoshop 20.2.0 on macOS 10.15.4)

Thanks. Will have engineering take a look. The workaround is to make sure "Legacy Compositing" under Preferences > Performance is unchecked. (Note: It's unchecked by default)
