Cannot print files to virtual driver from Microsoft Windows Photos App

In older OS, Win 10 Pro 20H2 (OS Build 19042.685), When file is printed to virtual printer driver from Photos App, Photos App generating (.SPL) file's in "C:\Windows\System32\spool\PRINTERS" directory.
File is printed to virtual printer driver.

As in latest OS, Windows 10 21H1(19043.1288) or Windows 11 21H2(22000.194), When file is printed to virtual printer driver from Photos App, Photos App are not generated (.SPL) in "C:\Windows\System32\spool\PRINTERS" directory and not shown any error message.

We have checked Release notes of latest Windows update “19043.1288” or "22000.194".
But, there is no information related to the above issue from release notes.

We have executed below workaround, still issue is exists.
1) Windows Photos App repaired.
2) Windows Photos App uninstalled using Power shell command then downloaded from Microsoft store.
3) Installed latest windows hotfix I.e. "KB5006670"
4) Spooler services restarted

Please let us know why .SPL files are not generated in latest OS.

Please help us!!!

Thanks in advance

Was it a documented behaviour (generating .SPL files)?
