Masto.host instances have been all upgraded to v1.5.0
Have a look at your instance homepage. It looks very different :)
@P I believe the idea behind making it like that is for someone that arrives at an instance in a language that person doesn't understand, to still be able to find the basic navigation and stuff.
I don't know but that the only logic I can think for that decision.
As for the admin settings, there is an variable you can set during installation for the default location but even that is bypassed.
