Camunda engine problem with timer cycles. One extra execution while using repetitive timers

So in my project we’re using an embedded camunda engine in a spring boot application and it’s external task feature. The way we build the BPMN model instance is using the Java API:


After we deploy the model instance created. Using the timerWithCycle we pass a timer repetitive timer like R2/2022-07-04T21:04:00Z/PT1M. We expect that two external tasks would be fired but instead we get three. Is this a known issue of the engine?
