In ClojureScript 1.10.597, when I define a multimethod that returns an anonymous fn with metadata on it, I get a SyntaxError.

(defmulti f identity)
(defmethod f :a [x] ^:m #(vector x))

I get: SyntaxError: Unexpected token 'return'
The relevant compiled js is:

... cljs.core.with_meta(return (function (){...

REPL session via http://clojurescript.net/

cljs.user=> (defmulti f identity)
#'cljs.user/f
cljs.user=> (defmethod f :a [x] ^:m #(vector x))
Unexpected token 'return'
SyntaxError: Unexpected token 'return'

The issue can be worked-around with an extra let:

(defmethod f :a [x] (let [g ^:m #(vector x)] g))

Nevertheless we should get this into Jira.
