I tried the paintbrush right now, and see that it does copy the 
paragraph style too (I vaguely remember that from a presentation at the 
first OOoCon I attended, 2004 :-) )

Is this change based on the idea, that people who use the paintbrush are 
not that much looking at styles, and thus that copying those styles 
might do more harm then good for them?
