Rain Bird ESP-STMe controller running program in manual mode after manual watering

I have a Rain Bird ESP-STMe controller that seems to have an issue, I think. I have been watering in manual only for awhile. So, I put the dial to manual mode, select zones to water and it works great until the manual watering is finished. It will then run the program while still in manual mode, like it's in auto mode. I don't remember it doing that before, I noticed it last year. I can stop that by suspending the program in auto mode, but it doesn't seem like the controller should automatically run the program when in manual mode.
