I do not see such a change in my inpaths reports.
FQDN are human-readable. 2 1 
2 2 12 tjb 12

I do not see any encrypted names.

I think you should take a deeper look at the changes you did; I 
otherwise do not see how encrypted names could have been generated since 
July 17th by ninpaths!

I bet you did not see any changes after that test?
