Is this just a 2018/2019 model issue? Im looking at buying a 2016 300rr and am wondering if this is something i should be concerned about?

Beta USA have officially said it's happened on around 5% of their 2018 models. They say it was fixed at some point in the 2019 run and the reduced occurrence would tend to back that up.

Earlier than that it's hard to say. If you look at the update vid at this time marker I've listed the cases that have been reported online to date.

I wouldn't trust these small selection too much as plenty of cases were never reported on social media, but it would suggest the problem started to get underway in 2017 and reached its peak in 2018.... so hopefully it wasn't really a known issue in 2016.
