Comment (by markhowellsmead):

 When converting medium-resolution photographs (approx 1600px – 2500px on
 the long edge), WebP files are often larger than the JPEG equivalent. (In
 my tests using my own photography, in around 60% of cases.) This change
 might make the “modern image format” test of Page Speed Insights happy,
 but enforcing WebP by default on sites which use a lot of photography will
 often cause longer image loading times.
