I don't see an "easy" advantage for NS to block flash

anyway, recent versions of Firefox alone can handle the flash blocking

NoScript doesn't block Flash per se, it blocks objects. Not sure if there is any easy and reliable way to detect if object is in fact Flash...

Last I checked, Firefox's click-to-play was per-site, not per-object.

Is there advantage to NoScript blocking Flash in FF > 68?

As it is, the only option for Flash in FF > 68 is "click to play" (aka "Ask") [or Off, altogether].
Will NoScript actually do more, actually blocking content download, or whatever, compared to FF's Ask?

As it is now, you're apt to get a double prompt on a Flash object (1 NoScript, 1 FF), http://inforss.mozdev.org/index.html.
