The posts that you quote are 10 years old. As per  (2020), there will be no LaTeX3. Nor is it only old documents that use the $…$ syntax : looking for learning ressources (see ), everything that I find uses it. That includes The Not So Short Introduction to LaTeX  (2021) and https://en.wikibooks.org/wiki/LaTeX/Mathematics. Although I have no evidence of this, my expectation is that the majority of tex users use the $…$ syntax (it is in fact widely used outside of tex: in most markdown flavors and texmacs for example). I also expect that a significant proportion of tex users are not aware of the \(…\) syntax. I think here of users that are less tech literate than most of this mailing list.
