5th has lots of "legends differ" descriptions so my guess would be that its another "up to the DM" decision.

There is Jander Sunstar in 5e "Descent into Avernus", he is a good character still, and vampire, if memory serves right. So at least they've kept this exception without retconning AD&D novel canon.
