Choose background or foreground focus in Warp Stabilizer
Warp Stabilizer only focuses on the most prominent object in the frame. When reducing unwanted camera movement, it's not helpful for the Stabilizer to follow every tiny tilt or move of an actor's head. A simple toggle to analyze the background instead of the foreground would make this effect much more useful. It's not ideal to have to create an After Effects project and delete tracking points for this extremely common problem.

I am noticing this problem too recently. The effect used to work properly for me, though. In the past, it was reasonably good at filtering out the foreground when stablizing shots.
Now, it's become unusable as it often locks on the subject rather than the background, introducing a lot of unwanted wobble rather than removing it. I see this with both versions of PP 2022 and 2021. However, as I said, it worked well in 2021 before.
I am writing this in Jan. of 2022. Was the effect changed by Adobe recently or could the instance on my computer that got somehow corrupted? If so, how can I fix it?
