Hi, and welcome to Trac.

I'm afraid this isn't a bug with core, as the wp-config.php file shouldn't have a closing PHP tag (it doesn't when it's generated by WordPress), and WordPress updates never touch this file.

It sounds like you might have a plugin or theme that is touching files and not doing so in a proper manner, you could make a post on our forums at https://wordpress.org/support/ to help you track down what is doing this if you'd like.

Hi @mynamevenu24,

Closing tags at the end of a file are not required in PHP. Omitting them helps to prevent developer errors where whitespace is accidentally left after the closing ?> tag (Warning: Cannot modify header information - headers already sent), which is just as bad as being left before <?php, but is more difficult to spot.

Closing tag was removed in [10252] for wp-config-sample.php, and in [19712] for all other files.
