1. because the spell buff icon still shows below your stamina bar
2. because the patch notes don't mention this. You'd think they would mention such a crucial change to the most popular buffs in the game, considering they mention much smaller changes on a regular basis.
I'll accept the very slim possibility that it is an intended change and they both a. forgot to document it AND b. forgot to disable the 'buff icon', but that's very unlikely given how on-point the patch notes usually are.
It is most likely an unintended side-effect of the changes to certain buff interactions, such as Bloodflame Blade and Fire's Deadly Sin, and the other issue where Golden Vow reduced damage done in certain cases.
