Been using  photoshop 20.0.10 for some years.
 
In version 20.0.10 or older I do pick colors pressing and holding ALT when using the Brush tool all the time. Due to my workflow, I always have the BG color swatch selected in the colors window, so whenever I press ALT and use the eyedropper to select a color, the color ALWAYS goes to the BG swatch.

 This doesnt work in versions 22.0 or newer. Whenever I hold ALT when using the brush tool to pick a color, the color ALWAYS goes to the FOREGRUND swatch, doesnt matter I have the Background swatch selected in the color windows.

Why was this changed? this is an essential part of my workflow.
