org-babel-load-file will try to tangle any source block that contains

For example, the following code block will be tangled:
I think this is a regression. I used to comment out blocks from my
.org init files by simply adding a XXX (as in emacs-lispXXXX). In
current org these blocks are tangled :(
I think your right. The regexp should only match on complete string.
I agree as well. Related code changed in 9.4:
The following is just my opinion, not a request for an update of the patch.
Maybe it will be better to change `org-babel-tangle-collect-blocks'
function in lisp/ob-tangle.el instead and to wrap passed argument in the
suggested way (at first I thought of non-capturing group "\\(?:" "\\)",
but it is not necessary since the regexp is passed to `string-match-p').
I suppose, it is more reliable default. If anyone really needs partial
match, he may express it explicitly by adding ".*", "?", etc. I hope,
such change will break no existing code.
