It is quite likely that your version of wireshark does not know how to
properly decode the TLS 1.3 ServerHello.  When interpreted as a TLS 1.2
ServerHello, it is expected to show as malformed, because the protocol
formats are different between the two protocols.  This is what Matt was
trying to say.

Someone could look at the raw hex dump of the packet and decode it
manually as a TLS 1.3 ServerHello to confirm whether it is actually
malformed or just a wireshark error.
