I went looking to see if a patch to fix the broken ATI Xorg driver had been
applied anywhere in BS homes by first searching
https://software.opensuse.org/package/xf86-video-ati for any that might
exist, downloading those I found, then examining their changelogs. The most
recent build found had only two changelog entries, both 3 years old. None of
the other 3 had any changelog entries dated more recent than 03 October. Why
are people getting drivers rebuilt that contain no changes from release
builds? What am I missing?

Relevant bug with proposed patch:
https://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=94171

Just guessing, some parts of drivers may need to be rebuilt to fit
recent kernel versions.
