Photoshop Gradient selection in Quick Mask Mode not working properly

When I make a selection in quick mask mode using the gradient tool (black to white) the equivalent selection is not from 0% to 100% but actually from 0% to around 99%.

 

So lets say, on a new layer, I draw a blue circle, then go into Quick Mask Mode, select the gradient tool, reset swatches and draw a horizontal gradient from the circle centre to the edge of the circle, click out of QMM (to effect the marching ants selection) and then 'Make new layer from selection', that new layer's bounds are not half the circle but the whole circle?! On close inspection the other half of the circle is still there just at one percent opacity.

 

Thats exactly the root of my issue: If I'm selecting the Default Swatches button while in Quick Mask Mode, the values should be pure black to pure white (ie: 0% to 100%). Or am I missing something?

Any one know how to fix this?

Thanks

I've viewed your video several times and don't see anything your doing wrong.

 

What version of photoshop and macOS are you using?

(From within  photoshop Help>System Info to see the exact Photoshop Version by the top line)

 

Do you have an Intel or M1 mac?

 

Have you tried resetting the photoshop preferences by going to Photoshop>Preferences>General, clicking Reset Preferences On Quit and restarting photoshop?
