My buest guess is that this is because it is now using something like 
inet_addr() for decoding the address instead of some roll-your-own code.
FWIW, this zero fill is a standard part of the system:

peter@daintree[11:24pm]~src/sys/pci-142> ping 192.168.5
PING 192.168.5 ( 56 data bytes
peter@daintree[12:13am]~src/sys/pci-143> ping 127.1
PING 127.1 ( 56 data bytes
64 bytes from icmp_seq=0 ttl=64 time=0.068 ms

This is far more prolific in IPv6.  Eg: "ping ::1" is localhost.
