I wondered if this were a dark mode issue, but light mode seems to show it as well. Anyone else seeing this? It is annoying only and does not seems to impact TeXing. (TeXShop 4.18, Mojave 10.14.1)

Did you turn the new spelling preferences ON? This could happen for them, and then I'd expect { to be syntax colored except when following one of the special commands whose parameters should not be spell checked.

If the spelling stuff sees \usepackage, then it checks to see is \usepackage is one of the special commands whose parameters need special treatment. It is, so the current code plunges right into the task of telling the system not to spell check up to two parameters, without first coloring {. 

I've promised myself to stop working on TeXShop for several months, so don't expect an immediate fix.
