I did some digging around for some recent changes and it seems like this fix ([]) from the scratch-www repo is what you're talking about. Turns out it's to make the buttons more colorblind-friendly by adding borders to the icons. Suppose that's because it's hard to see the icon against the white background for people who are colorblind.

Yes this is an intended change probably for accessibility reasons.

This change is likely a prelude to a bigger one that's upcoming.

It's most likely intended for higher contrast, for higher visibility, especially if you're colorblind, as the borders go away when the button is active.

This change was implemented to make it possible for colorblind users to tell the gray love/favorite icons apart from the colored icons. Since now they're outlined when inactive, users don't have to see color to tell if the icons were toggled.

I'm proud to say I was involved in this change, too (I'm the one who suggested it, and another contributor actually made the change).

Maybe it’s to increase contrast? Like the new scratch lab blocks?.
It definitely is.
