Anything goes, as long as it is about the Lockheed Martin F-22 Raptor

I don't know if anyone else here has noticed this too, but in the demos, in the last few months at least (if not in the last few years), when the J-Turn maneuver is about to be performed, left engine thrust is reduced, more precisely, left engine thrust is reduced to MIL power, or below MIL power, while the right engine continues in full AB.
Here's an example. At about 01:46: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6jvgGNBJzOk

During many years, that didn't happen, they didn't do it like that...
In the past, the pilot just maintained full AB thrust in both engines before, during and only reduced thrust after the end of the J-Turn itself.
Anyone knows, or has an idea why they changed this?


EDIT
Here's how it used to be, at about 28:05 into the movie/video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m5Z_Eg5QFbM
