Confirming. Took me a while to find where the screenshot is from.
Moving from component "AFT" to "AFTv5".

In short: <label for="widget-id">Label-for-Widget</label> markup is missing.

Still valid on :

<div id="articleFeedbackv5-select-wrapper">
<select id="articleFeedbackv5-filter-select">

<option value="">More filters</option>


<div id="articleFeedbackv5-sort">
<span class="articleFeedbackv5-sort-label">Sort by:</span>
<div id="articleFeedbackv5-sort-wrapper">

<select id="articleFeedbackv5-sort-select">
 <option value="relevance-asc">Relevant</option>

Closing this report as WONTFIX to reflect reality.
