Comment (by dd32):

 > This happened on an existing site, so I'm not entirely sure when we'd
 fix this. wp-admin/maint script? DB upgrade process? Core file update
 process? I'm not sure what caused this here, which would probably play
 into how to best account for it. (Wordfence was on the site, could have
 been related.)

 My thinking is that we'd do this during the core file update process; Any
 directories (& files?) which have more restrictive permissions than
 `FS_CHMOD_*` would get their permissions reset.
 It kind of sucks to make permissions less restrictive when potentially
 someone explicitly set those, but as we'll be creating new files &
 directories as it.. I don't see a massive issue there.

 Worth noting that these errors mostly come into play with Major updates
 and not maintenance updates.
