Per https://opensource.apple.com/releases/, they switched from
macOS Monterey 12 with GNU bc 1.06 https://github.com/apple-oss-distributions/bc/tree/bc-21/bc
to macOS 13 with GH bc 4.0.2 https://github.com/apple-oss-distributions/bc/tree/bc-26/bc
I suspect this is similar to the replacement of bash with zsh for GPL avoidance.
Interesting timeline though, https://git.yzena.com/gavin/bc/src/tag/4.0.2 was released in 2021-05-01, https://git.yzena.com/gavin/bc/src/tag/5.0.0 in 2021-08-08.
