This behavior is normal. You have to read how you are supposed to use the tool, or look at a few tutorials.

What you will often see in the tuts is how they first cut through an object (like the one you have sticking out), then use the tool.

I don't use the Patch tool as often as I should, but I think it has to try and mix in the target to the source, which is the magic of it. Therefore you retain some of the black, as it wants best of both worlds. If you want a better replacement, you may want to use the Clone Tool instead (play with opacity, edge, blend mode, ... depending on what you want), or try the Content Aware Fill.

That looks like normal patch blending. You are zoomed right in so the area for blending the edges is limited. What would normally happen around the edges is happening right across your patch due to the very small pixel area being patched.

Would it be possible to disable blending, or should you just use a different tool instead if you don't want blending?

P.S. If you've watched the video, it probably also tells you settings may need to be different if you patch something on the edge.
