Did they change the keyboard backlighting (compared to the '20 model)?

Has anyone taken a deeper look into the keyboard’s backlighting and can compare it to the 2020 models? Have they reduced light bleeding? Pictures of the keyboard module would be super interesting.

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

The bleed issue is likely the same as there is still a gap between the bottom of the key and the top edge of the case. Apple did alter things by painting the keyboard depression area black.

Some makers use a double wall design so the keycap edge slides into a U channel, but the requires more height space.
