      The bug

      When any entity (including the player) gets the glowing effect and you remove it, it will not stop glowing. Seems like the entity now also gets the Glowing NBT tag when getting the effect, which wasn’t a thing in previous versions and they don’t lose that NBT tag when the effect runs out, causing them to glow forever. For non-player entities you can get rid of the glow, using /data. Since /data cannot modify data of players, that doesn’t work to get rid of it for players.
      You can however get rid of it by killing yourself or by leaving the end using the portal. Discovered while testing MC-164874.

      How to reproduce:

      1. Give any entity the glowing effect using spectral arrow or a command
      2. Remove it or wait
        The entity still glows. You can get rid of it using /kill
