Depends on what you consider a regression.  For me it includes both
funtionality AND usability lost.  But I won't uselessly belabor the
semantic point.

It's not at all another matter from my users' perspective.

Prior to forced-QR-codes, they 'had':

(1) a dispaly of information that was manageable on small screens
(2) info that understandable ("what are these things?"),
(3) functionality that's not against policy (We, and a number of our
clients, by policy don't allow QR codes usage inside the firewall. No
way to verify what they 'do' ....  Yes, that's out choice, and one we'd
like to have the option to continue).

Calling it 'another matter', while a fair point & probably technically
correct, distracts from the main intent of my post -- that long-standing
and increasingly (un)popular issues aren't getting fixed, and it's
costing time, money and adoption.
