So it's the modesetting one.

(*)googling a bit it seems this is a recently ongoing issue, switching to
modesetting. Any word if for TW such a change happened recently?

Check if the pci ID of your gfxchip matches any listed in

Obviously it is (8086191B), else it wouldn't use the modesetting one :)

The question rather was has that always been the case or/and has the ranking
of modesetting vs. intel changed lately? Probably not,
rpm -q --changelog xorg-x11-server lists

- modesetting.ids:
Add file for PCI IDs of ASICs which the modesetting rather
than the native driver should be used for.
This includes all Intel Gen9+ hardware (boo#978954).

as last relevant change...
