Updading kde-frameworks to 5.50.0 unexpectedly lead to failure to update kdeinit with the following error

Code:

.......
>>> Completed installing kinit-5.50.0 into /scratch/wheeler/portage/kde-frameworks/kinit-5.50.0/image/

 * Final size of build directory: 3360 KiB (3.2 MiB)

!!! Failed to copy extended attributes. In order to avoid this error,
!!! set FEATURES="-xattr" in make.conf.
!!! copy /scratch/wheeler/portage/kde-frameworks/kinit-5.50.0/image/usr/lib64/libexec/kf5/start_kdeinit -> /usr/lib64/libexec/kf5/start_kdeinit failed.
!!! Filesystem containing file '/usr/lib64/libexec/kf5/start_kdeinit#new' does not support extended attribute 'security.capability'


There are two issues -

first of all it is the first time I see such requirement to the filesystem while doing minor update for the packages. I don't see any description of that in news or ebuild

secondly, my root partition on which /usr/lib64/libexec/kf5/ resides is EXT4 mounted as

Code:
 
mount
...
/dev/sda2 on / type ext4 (rw,noatime,block_validity,delalloc,barrier,user_xattr,acl)
....


not sure where the problem is ? If I look at my kernel configuration, I see that ext4 does not have enabled 'CONFIG_EXT4_FS_SECURITY'. Is that it ? Kernel help says
"Security labels support alternative access control models mplemented by security modules like SELinux. This option enables an extended attribute handler for file security labels in the ext4 filesystem.
If you are not using a security module that requires using extended attributes for file security labels, say N. "

Do I now need it to run KDE ?? Is it what USE flag 'caps' (enabled by default) for kinit does ? (But it was enabled for kinit-5.46.0 as well, which was installed with no problems)

OK, USE='-caps' solves the issue, but why it was not needed before ? Also, among use flags, I am confused about usage of 'caps' and 'filecaps'
