I was doing accessibility regression testing on a website that's in development and noticed that Microsoft Accessibility Insights started failing on the web part sections due to role="section" being added to it. This fails because the role is abstract. Last week, this same section passed. However, I can't seem to find anywhere that this change is documented.
