From what I can tell, in the $defaults array 'title_reply_to' on Line 2227 of wp-includes/comment-template.php is supposed to be called when I click "Reply" to another commenter, but it is not doing so in every theme I have tried, however, it does work in the customizer view. Here's a screenshot of what I found.

Adding to this to confirm that I also see this behavior of title_reply_to not changing the title. I have never seen the title change to 'Leave a Reply to %s' as documented when replying to another comment. Even though the form moves and the 'cancel reply' link is made visible -- signs that comment-reply.js seems to have been properly enqueued. This is true not only on my own custom theme that I’m working on now, but on every WordPress site I have found so far, including @matt's own site:


and others with the exact same reproducible bug:
