This is intentional. Artifacts in v4 were originally too rare (overcompensation when trying to tone down the huge numbers dropping in 3.3.x) and then too common (when that was readjusted). They've been toned back down again, but not as far as before. They're now about 2-3x less common than in V3.3.x, so your numbers don't seem too far out.
