Internal links all modified to be 'explicit'

I'm using Joplin on Ubuntu 20. Here's my complete version info:

Joplin 2.0.11 (prod, linux)

Client ID: da5277cbd77a47d2913af1c1fbea06e6
Sync Version: 2
Profile Version: 39
Keychain Supported: No

Revision: 981b1d8

I regularly use a feature I don't know the name of, but it is a way to create 'aliases' to links you can use throughout a note. It looks like this:

<!-- -->
[My useful link]: https://some/useful/place

That allows me to just enter [My useful link] anywhere throughout that note, and it resolves to the correct address.

I use this feature regularly, and my main journal entry has literally hundreds of such links defined and used throughout it.

Yesterday when I opened Joplin and brought up my main note, I saw that all references to such 'aliases' had been modified--instead of being just the simple reference, they now included the definition of the target as well. So

[My useful link]

has been replaced by

[My useful link](https://some/useful/place)

This happened to all the different links used throughout the document. Also, all of the places in the text prefaced by <!-- --> have been removed.

Is there some Joplin command that I unknowingly invoked to cause this change? Or, is there some other known explanation for this?

Thanks for any info,
