[BUG] Draw Distance Reduced in SU9?

We think we have noticed a change in draw distance since SU9. For example the LOD03 model that is supposed to appear in the centre of this screenshot is set to appear at Screen Size 5.0. LOD02 is set to display at Screen Size 5 but even though it is at 11 there is no model (only the smoke effect is showing in the example below). Is this a known issue?

If that screenshot is taken with a drone cam at high zoom it may be related to my suggestion/report here: https://devsupport.flightsimulator.com/idea/8229/take-camera-zoom-into-calculation-for-object-culli.html

At long range objects disappear based on the individual mesh node sizes, as if the camera was at 1x zoom. For a jet fighter sized object this means roughly 2000m max.
