Select a vector layer --> Save as
Click the browse button to select file name, let's say "test" (in GeoPackage format)
The file path is now shown as /path/to/test.gpkg
Now switch the file format to shapefile
The File name is still shown as /path/to/test.gpkg
The created file is name /path/to/test.gpkg.shp (a bit ugly)

Also affects master.
