This is a change in V4. In earlier versions, the default blocking mode was IP, which returned the IP address of the Pi-Hole. The new default is NULL (as explained in the linked article) as the developers found that NULL provided the best performance for the majority of users.

Changing your default blocking mode is discussed in this link.
