Did updating to v8.5.8 remove Closing multiple documents from that tab's context menu?
The option in the File menu is there.
Closing multiple documents is still there in the tab’s right click menu. In a quite recent Notepad++ update before v8.5.8 many of the options available in the right-click menu were moved into sub-menus of the right click menu. The close multiple documents options are now tucked into the Close Multiple Tabs sub-menu which then has all four of the options that used to be in the main right click menu.
There is a workaround that lets people move options back into the main right-click menu. When npp was first updated to have this sub-menu structure I was planning on implementing that workaround for the now-sub menu options I use frequently but I discovered that I quickly got used to the sub-menu structure and so left things that way.
Unfortunately, I can’t find the forum post or manual section that gives the workaround. If I recall, it involved editing one of Notepad++'s configuration files.

Thank you both. I don’t know why I didn’t see the option yesterday.
