I'm experiencing an issue where an autocomplete populated by a clipboard page is transforming text values into dates without the assistance of a data transform or activity. The autocomplete takes a text field containing up to 5 numbers and translates them to a date roughly corresponding to those 5 numbers. An example being 123, which when the autocomplete populates 123 it changes it to 12/3/2020.
Original field and recipient field are both text. The properties are text. The HTML control is text. It tries to do this for integer to integer but fails to populate because a date is not an integer and cannot be populated as such.
Any idea what could be causing this or what I can do to fix this?

No there are no action sets on the autocomplete, yes it is the OOTB autocomplete with no modifications to the original control. I have tried deleting and recreating the control with different properties.

At what point does it translate into a date? Is it after you post, after you submit?
For example, if you have a post value on change, does it already change to a date? Or is it after the screen has submitted and you re-review the value on the UI?
What does the clipboard say about the value during these transitions?
