_add_template_loader_filters uses add_filter to hook into pre_get_posts, which is an action hook and not a filter. Therefore, add_action should be used.

Technically, both are identical under the hood, but especially for people new to the code base this could cause confusion.

In 55335:

Themes: Use add_action for pre_get_posts hook in _add_template_loader_filters().

Although add_action and add_filter are internally the same, pre_get_posts is an action hook. This change updates the hook type to match what developers would expect when evaluating the code.
