I have a few of those, that worked in the past. So I think the behaviour
had changed some time in the past year or so.

I liked the old behaviour (but it's not super important for me), because
it's a bit of a burden to think out table headers if one don't want/need
them. Sometimes the headers are wider than the content of the column and
makes the whole table wider then 80 characters and empty table headers
are aesthetically questionable ;).
