No, it is a well thought of feature, not a regression. It depends on
your directory access rights only. You are on Linux and run Lazarus as
normal user. If you were allowed to select "Clean All", you would get
error from OS.
The assumption is that once you install Lazarus under /usr/... it will
not change and you don't need "Clean All". When installing packages
and rebuilding Lazarus the changes will happen in your home directory
and "startlazarus" starts the new executable from there.

We used to get reports that people had to run Lazarus as root. The
change was made to prevent such reports. There used to be real bugs in
the building process but they are fixed. (?)
If you find a _real_ situation where this does not work then please report.
