 6630.patch looks like the wrong fix to me.

 The discrepancy between the two uses of the filter was introduced in
 [9160]. The filter was originally introduced to the AJAX callback in
 [2552], using 3 params, not 4.

 In [2692], the same filter was added to
 `bp_activity_action_post_update()`, using the same pattern of 3

 It's not a very well-designed filter, and has probably caused bugs over
 the years. Perhaps it ought to have been written with `false` for the
 default parameter from the start. But I don't think there's a pressing
 reason to change it - it's certainly possible to use it the way it is.
 (MrMaz managed to use it!) [9160] looks like a regression to me.

 I'm not sure whether a different approach is needed for #6021. If so, it
 probably looks like this:

 } else {
     $posted_object = $_POST['object'];
     $activity_id = apply_filters( 'bp_activity_custom_update',
 $posted_object, $item_id, $content );
     if ( $posted_object === $activity_id ) {
         $activity_id = null;

 If we go this route, the filter needs to be carefully documented to
 explain this quirk.

 Alternatively, let's introduce a new filter that does what [9160] does.
