@chrislab It seems you have used a different theme default WordPress theme. Check the Twenty Twenty theme edit post screenshot.

If you have used any other theme then default theme then please contact to theme author as it is not a WordPress issue.

it's exactly same problem with default theme - on your screenshot title is centered (but block aligned to the left) and paragraph is not aligned identical to the title - it's indented more to the right - different than in pre-5.4 wordpress. I was checking my site without plugins and with default theme - it looks like a bug. Theme doesn't matter

The title and post content do not have to be aligned left. This is up to the theme and its own choices in adding editor styling.

In Twenty Twenty, for example, the title is centered, because on the actual page when viewing the post, the title is centered there.

It is up to each theme to add styling to the editor to make it look as close to the output on the page as it can. This may mean that the title is wider than the content, or that the alignment isn't straight edge on the title and the content. That choice is up to the theme.
