Latecomer question on starters relieving

SDS

I picked up 20 late during the sale last month and built my team up so I've only played about 10 RS games. Tonight, for the first time, I saw a starter come on in relief and was confused.
Later looked it up and found posts from May about this. Complaints then, which I agree with, were it didn't affect stamina enough and you could just throw your starters in a lot.

Has this been addressed during the season to limit that to a more realistic level?
Thanks!

No, not really, although it seems to be a bit less of a thing lately.
