It's because of restrictions imposed in Android 11. See Storage updates in Android 11. Apps are permitted to see only their folders and not of those of other apps,with these restrictions.
If your explorer is updated for Android 11 and you can't see, you can view the content going the long way
root/data/media/0/Android/data. If your explorer supports, add a favorite tab. Alternatively
Use a file explorer that is not updated to Android 11 (SDK 30) and you can view directly as before (This is my assumption, haven't tested)
Edit : I just checked SD Maid app. This app has a file explorer built-in and targets SDK 30. Surprisingly, file explorer of this app can access without any issues.
I am guessing that this app has exemptions given the nature of it's purpose and maybe those exemptions aren't given to file explorers.. From the developer on mail
I did not make specific changes to the Android/data browsing but SD Maid already had fallback logic that automatically determines what permission levels are required to access a path.
