Customer contacted us (36716345-hc) to note that the content in the block editor on their site is suddenly full width. (They weren't able to provide a specific timeline, but noted the change was from at least the past week. I suspect this may be much more recent and related to a Gutenberg update.)
The live site and previews aren't affected, but there is no padding/margin to either side of content in the editor anymore.
The max or default content width in the editor should match what is expected for that theme.
Example from Meraki (FSE) theme:
The content spans the entire width of the editor, with no margins or padding.
Example from Hever theme:
Reproduced on Hever and Twenty Twenty. Unable to reproduce on block themes like Meraki or Twenty Twenty-Two.
Some (< 50%)
No but the platform is still usable

I confirmed it's happening in Gema on my site.
This user is using Franklin. I'm finding out about the others.
At first, I wasn't able to replicate this on a .org site with the default, Twenty Twenty-Two theme active. But then I tested on a Simple site with this theme, and I couldn't replicate it. So it sounds like only some themes are affected.
Taking one of the examples above, I installed Independent Publisher 2 on a self-hosted site. And here are the results:
Independent Publisher 2 theme on self-hosted, Gutenberg plugin deactivated:
Same setup, with Gutenberg plugin activated.
So it seems like the affected themes can be replicated on a self-hosted site with Gutenberg 14.0.0.
Seems to be a core issue. I've created a GH issue on core Gutenberg here https://github.com/WordPress/gutenberg/issues/43752

The PR to fix this has been merged https://github.com/WordPress/gutenberg/pull/43755
This issue should be fixed very as soon as the patch is rolled into WP.com
@andrewserong or @fullofcaffeine Do you know if is this going to be rolled out this week on WP.com? it seems we're getting quite a lot of requests.
EDIT: I replied to my user here since it looks like Gutenberg 14.0.2 resolved it.
