 Hello welcome to WordPress trac! thanks for your report, you're right, I'm
 able to reproduce the issue, the function was introduce here [8728]. For
 what I understand it used to replace
 }}} but "why" i don't know.

 pinging @ryan as he was author of commit, may be he can enlighten us.
 And @SergeyBiryukov for milestone. I think the ticket should be milestone
 for 6.0 if it's accepted.

 Also the function always returns abs value(e.g wp_rand( -1, -1) = 1
 instead of -1)
