I recently set up a fresh Eclipse install (2020-03) on a new laptop and found some weirdness in comparison to my old setup (Oxygen) on my main workstation.

I have package annotations:


and in a class inside that package I have:

  public @Nullable Ingredient getRecipeObject() {
    return nullItem ? null : thing.asIngredient();

Now Eclipse give me a warning about "Null type mismatch: required '@Nonnull Ingredient' but the provided value is inferred as @Nullable" with a quick fix of "Change return type of 'getRecipeObject(..)' to '@Nullable'" (which obviously changes nothing).

Same goes for a whole library that is package-annotated that way; all explicit Nullable annotations are ignored.

So, did I mess up something when setting up the new workspace or was there something changed in Eclipse? And if it's the latter: What can I do about it? (I only have one package where I use package annotations, that's easy to change. But the whole 3rd-party framework is set up that way, that's not something I can change.)
