Do you use a V4 compatible weather engine / V4 compatible PTA preset ?

Yes, the presets I tried were specifically for v4. My weather engine is the free fsxwx, but I also do not see any shadows when I just use the default weather, like "fair weather" and such presets from the weather menu.

Even reverting back to the default shaders I don't see them, which is very strange. Btw why there is no "enable terrain to receive shadow" box in the graphics options anymore? I remember having it in v3.

Ok, I got the shadows back.

It seems that the Ultimate Realism pack was the culprit. After I deactivated it at Options/Add-ons and reverted back the default shaders in PTA, the cloud shadows were back.

Then I loaded back the PTA presets downloaded from REX (presets made for texture direct texture pack), and the shadows were still there. So basically by deactivating URP from addons, I got it working.

Don't know why URP has to be an active addon in the first place, as far as I know it's just a bundle of PTA and reshade presets...
