The timing of the engine change is important here.  If you did it after you started Q1, then you did it after the start of the parc ferme period, and you will get penalized - even if it is only your 2nd or 3rd instance of that particular component.  You must do Q1/Q2/Q3 and the race with the exact same engine components or you will get a grid penalty.  That's the same as the real-world F1 rules.

If you change between qualify and the race you get a penalty per changed part theres a warning displayed before you do this.

Maybe you had the parc ferme rules turned off when you played 2019?  If not and the game let you do that, then it was really a bug with 2019 because it should have penalized you for it - it's been this way for as long as I can remember.  I can't speak to you getting the warning or not as I haven't changed any components after the start of Q1.

@JKSullivan and @TheCroc84 are spot on. This aspect of the parc ferme rules are as old as the grave and Codemasters F1 games being trying to provide a simulation of the motorsport, you can bet that if this was not the case on F1 2019 (i.e. being able to swap parts in-between Q1 and the race) we'd have a torrent of topics pointing out the issue.

We've got topics just to say the half the color of the kerbs of one circuit are wrong, just imagine getting the regulations wrong?

That is not to say that there ain't any bugs. It's just that the "it wasn't this way before" won't fly, mate.
