Copied from my initial analysis on T237782:

Wrongpassword is one of our older messages and has had a Persian translation since a very long time ago. The only places I can see it being used in core also have not changed recently. Even on fawiki, MediaWiki:Wrongpassword shows the localized translation. I'm not sure which part of code ignores the i18n and decides to show the English message instead.

Of note, when I am unable to reproduce this outside of WMF wikis. For instance, on my local wiki using 904edf527901db577475212b98ffa108c4ff8804 or any other version from the last 4 days, the error message shows localized. I am starting to wonder if some other piece of code (maybe MediaWiki-extensions-LoginNotify or MediaWiki-extensions-CentralAuth) is to blame for this issue on WMF wikis.
