How about this for What’s New:

* The :meth:`str.startswith` and :meth:`str.endswith` methods no longer return ``True`` when finding the empty string and the indexes are completely out of range. See :issue:`24284`.

Perhaps that is good enough, but if you wanted to be more precise, I think the actual condition is if the *start* index is beyond the end of the string, or *end* is before *start*.
