Face-Aware Changes in Liquify aren't working for me unless I make a New Layer from a Selection

I can make a selection and then make Face-Aware changes in the Liquify module, but they won't actually apply to the image unless I use "Command-J" to first make a new layer from the selection. Other liquify changes, like smudge and expand/contract DO seem to work without copying to a new layer.

 

I'm running Photoshop 23.3.2 on a Mac Studio M1 Max 10 Core, with 64GB of RAM. 

See the included image for my Performance preferences settings.

FYI, that does work on my PC v23.3.1, but I've set up an action that puts a layer or selection on top, then makes it a S.O. and opens Liquify. You can merge down with the same action if you add a stop and use F1 (for example) to Continue. I think it's good practice.

Works here on my M1. I don't have a MAX, however. 

Let's make sure we're in a default state and there are no stale settings somewhere:
Restore your preferences using this manual method:

Does it work correctly?
If that doesn't solve it, you can quit Photoshop and put the Settings folder back.
If it does solve the problem, I would like to get the folder of settings to try and figure out what is bad with them.
