One elephant in the room is that you're on an arm64 system, which is
certainly unusual for a GNOME desktop. We've had a report on IRC that
another arm64 user (with a different GPU) is seeing a similar bug.

This is not a problem and can safely be ignored.

This might indicate a problem, I'm not sure.

Does 3.38.1-3 from experimental make any difference? That version has the
latest changes from the upstream gnome-3-38 branch, which will be released
in 3.38.2 at some point.

If 3.38.1-3 doesn't solve this, since you've been able to narrow this
down to two relatively close versions, it would be useful for someone
with appropriate hardware (I don't have this) to do a `git bisect`
between the good version and the bad version, to isolate which specific
change made this regress - that would make it a lot more likely that
someone can figure out the root cause.
