 WordPress 5.8 introduced some logic to load some styles in the bottom of
 the body for classic themes that opted-in into loading block assets
 separately. For classic themes that didn't opt-in and block themes, the
 styles should be loaded in the head.

 Specifically, in https://core.trac.wordpress.org/ticket/53494 global
 styles were set to do that. However, at some point during the WordPress
 5.9 cycle, a regression was introduced that made block themes to have the
 global styles in the body.

 Similarly, block styles generated by WordPress dynamically (layout and
 elements) should have been loaded following the same logic. Instead, these
 are always loaded in the body.
