Are moderators no longer able to add comments on deleted posts?

Moderators used to be able to comment on deleted or locked posts. However I've just noticed I am unable to add a comment to a deleted question on Meta Stack Overflow, as the "add comment" link is disabled (but still visible).

Is this an intentional change, or is it a bug?

I've double-checked that I'm still logged in, and disabled all userscripts.

I'm running Chrome 76 on Windows 10.
