Why oh why did Adobe change their profiling for RAW images?

I can't for the life of me understand why Adobe went and changed their profiling. I noticed this on the Canon 5d4 and of course on the R as well. Actually I think it happens on all cameras that came out around 2015/2016. You can see this too if you look at the test images on Dpreview for each camera. 5d2 RAWs and 5d3 RAWs with default Adobe profiles have much more punch and a please image. 5d4 and R RAWs just look super dull and you have to work much more to bring out the image. Is there ANY way to get the profiling of 5d2/5d3 images to apply to 5d4/R images? Is this even possible? What program is used to build profiles? I know you can do it, but I can't seem to figure it out.
