as discovered recently and shared on dev ML, in maven-model-builder, StringVisitorModelInterpolator introduced by
MNG-6697 in Maven 3.6.2 is meant to replace StringSearchModelInterpolator
but currently, both can be injected and the selection of one against the other depends on the order of generated CDI descriptors: if you're lucky, StringVisitorModelInterpolator appear first, but if you're not, StringSearchModelInterpolator will do instead.
In addition, with Reproducible Builds being introduced in
MNG-6789, the order that is introduced is String lexical order: StringSearchModelInterpolator is then before StringVisitorModelInterpolator then with Reproducible Builds we get the unwanted result in a reproducible way...
we need to ensure that StringVisitorModelInterpolator will be used instead of StringSearchModelInterpolator
