This did not happen when I used Org 9.4.6:

I wouldn't care about this change, but when I validate the page code 
(https://validator.w3.org/) I get the following: "Info: Trailing slash on void 
elements has no effect and interacts badly with unquoted attribute values."

Timothy, may you take a look?

Just to give some support to my request, the HTML standard 
(https://html.spec.whatwg.org/multipage/syntax.html#start-tags) says this: "Then, if 
the element is one of the void elements, or if the element is a foreign element, then 
there may be a single U+002F SOLIDUS character (/), which on foreign elements marks the 
start tag as self-closing. On void elements, it does not mark the start tag as 
self-closing but instead is unnecessary and has no effect of any kind. For such void 
elements, it should be used only with caution — especially since, if directly preceded by 
an unquoted attribute value, it becomes part of the attribute value rather than being 
discarded by the parser."
