An optical fibre is really an optocoupler of sorts.  Don't think they'll be going out of fashion anytime soon :-)

But yes one does see more wired Ethernet nowadays.  The transformers give reasonable isolation but not as good as opto.

Optocouplers are commonly used in inputs of industrial controllers of any kind.
At least they were for decades. Not so much anymore when everything is going ethernet
