As stated in summary, pg_pconnect() returns new link.

Test script:

Interactive shell

php > $db = pg_pconnect('host=localhost');

It seems it's broken for a long time. Fix this for only PHP 7.4 and later?

The first call to pg_pconnect() registers a new persistent
resource, and returns it, the second call to pg_pconnect()
registers a new *non* persistent resource which wraps the same
PGconn and returns that.

While the implementation is somewhat surprising for me too, this
doesn't look like a bug to me; even the docs are not violated:

| If a second call is made to pg_pconnect() with the same
| connection_string as an existing connection, the existing
| connection will be returned […]

And odbc_pconnect() is basically implemented like that.  Why do
you regard this as bug?
