Dates block while waiting for guest to reply

A while ago when guest made a request to book on airbnb and awaiting for host approval, our dates were open and searchable (well at least in my experience)

Now, it is not.
Did I miss anything with other changes too?

An inquiry won’t block dates on the calendar (unless you pre-approve and click the “hold these dates” option), but a request (where it’s got a 24 hr countdown clock) will.

This doesn’t have info on when dates are held, but the statuses are helpful anyway:
