Database error in SQL syntax ( $wpdb->prepare )

I start receive next errors with new version.
This is an issue with function "$wpdb->prepare" on the line

$query = preg_replace( '/%(?:%|$|([^dsF]))/', '%%\\1', $query );

Example code:

global $wpdb;
$results = $wpdb->get_results( 
$wpdb->prepare( '
        SELECT %1$s.ID FROM %1$s WHERE %1$s.post_type = "post"
        AND %1$s.post_status = "publish"
        LIMIT 1
', $wpdb->posts ), ARRAY_N );

var_dump( $results );


WordPress database error You have an error in your SQL syntax; check the manual that corresponds to your MySQL server version for the right syntax to use near '%1$s.ID FROM %1$s WHERE %1$s.post_type = "post"

	AND %1$s.post_status = "pu' at line 1 for query 

	SELECT %1$s.ID FROM %1$s WHERE %1$s.post_type = "post"

	AND %1$s.post_status = "publish"

Hi there, and thanks for the report.

The use of numbered variables is actually an unsupported syntax, as noted in the documentation, the introduction of numbered variables are being discussed in #41925.
