Google Showing More FAQ Rich Results By Tweaking Which Sites Can Show Them?

Over the weekend I saw two SEOs notice that Google is showing FAQ-rich results more often since it recently announced it would only show these FAQ-rich results for the most authoritative sites. The weird part, I tried to replicate it and I am not able to see FAQ rich results for these queries and sites.

This makes me feel like this is a bug but who knows.

The drop off around on September 13th but now I am seeing them return:

Karthikeyan Maruthai noticed this over the weekend and posted this screenshot on X of a site showing these FAQ rich results - again, I do not see them:

Brodie Clark posted this morning on X noticing a return as well via Google Search Console and some more screenshots of the SERPS (again, I tried those queries and they do not show up for me):

I wonder if Google is testing something, if there is a bug, or maybe the November 2023 Reviews update triggered something? I do not know.

Forum discussion at X.
