The mime type of .bmp was changed from image/x-ms-bmp in https://github.com/python/cpython/pull/4756.

https://github.com/python/cpython/pull/3062 then re-introduced image/x-ms-bmp while keeping the newer image/bmp mapping.

Since this change has a user-visible effect a NEWS entry is required. Just copy it from issue22589.
