What happened to locality and sub-locality?

I manage about a dozen hotel business listings and I recently noticed that there is no longer an option to add locality and sub locality manually. The address info switched back to listing "city" only. I'm not seeing any kind of release or discussion about this. Is Google now assuming locality and sub locality themselves in order to keep that information out of user control?

I can't even  remember that GMB enabled in the past to enter  locality and sub locality for all countries.

But maybe I forgot it was in fact possible.

For my own country there never was this option available.

To what country belong the locations of your hotel business listings?

They are all for US based businesses. I recall locality being an option as recently as this summer.
