Copying and pasting between terminal windows adds extra characters

I’ve recently moved from MacOS 10.4 to 10.15. I use Japanese/English/Russian/Chinese, and I’ve noticed a different behavior when copying between terminal windows on 10.15. Extra characters, specifically 00~, 01~ are prepended and appended to my buffer. As an example,

ideas/2020

becomes

00~ideas/202001~

when pasted.
I’m unsure if this issue is a function of the languages or a significant change in behavior in the terminals, but it’s rather bothersome.

Any suggestions on what might inhibit the addition of extra characters in the buffer would be greatly appreciated.
