Hi there, welcome back to WordPress Trac! Thanks for the ticket.

Just noting this has come up multiple times before, please see the previous discussions in #7194, #13118, #15289, #21924, #24673, #38444, #38800, #44552.

To summarize, the wp-login.php or wp-admin URLs are not intended to be customizable, as that's just security through obscurity and doesn't really help with anything, so there are currently no plans to implement this.
