Can you determine when it changed, i.e. between which Aquamacs versions exactly?

Aquamacs 1.5 came out a long time ago, with thousands of little changes in the meantime.

No, that is just an internal variable so Aquamacs can tell which version of Aquamacs wrote the customizations file.  Of course, a range of internal things depend on this so that users upgrading to newer versions do not have to change too many settings.

Try turning off tabbar-mode (Options menu).
This may give you the desired behavior - at least it does so for me.
