It probably varies with the position and level of responsibility.

I think there is a common perception that professionals should "advance
abd grow" as time passes, which results in people looking at an older
person in a non-senior individual contributor role and wondering "what's
wrong" with that person's ability and/or drive. The higher up the
seniority ladder you are and the more apparent it is that you have
achieved progressively higher levels of responsibility and expertise
over time, the older you can be before that perception begins to set in.
