I actually “saw the same” on Catalina while using little snitch. 

“Saw the same” after installing yesterday Big Sur and suddenly received a notification “this version of little snitch is no longer supported by macOS. It’s looks like I have to pay 25€ for a new compatible version.

Which means I can now run Catalina with Bluetooth enabled and not have any wi-fi problems.
