[pretest]: xelatex selects semibold instead of bold

When I run the following MWE through xelatex it selects Libertinus Serif
Semibold instead of Libertinus Serif Bold unless I set explicitely
[BoldFont = * Bold].

\setmainfont{Libertinus Serif}
\setsansfont{Libertinus Sans}
Regular text and \textbf{boldface text}

I don't know if this is intended behaviour and when it was introduced.
But I think (but I'm not 100% sure) it was different in TL18.

Also, if this is an issue at all, I don't know whether it needs to be
fixed upstream or whether it is an issue with TL config files. So
please excuse if this is the wrong place to report.
