And all your paths should be filled?

 

Then you could select them all and apply the Outline stroke effect to their strokes.

Then apply the Pathfinder effects (from the Effects menu) Trim and Add.

 

Like so: Bildschirmfoto 2022-06-09 um 19.47.54.png

It will also happen with rectangles when you round the corners.

You can correct it in the Attributes panel by checking the Reverse Path Direction Off button after expanding.

Thanks so much for the tip, but that doesn't solve my problem, I have a complex path structure to expand, and I was looking for a way to do it without sorting the pieces one by one. To understand, imagine something like in the screenshots below
