Automating the Hue motion sensor to turn on the lights does not always turn off after the set time when the brightness is set to 100%

Hello everyone! I recently added some Hue bulbs and a motion sensor in the bathroom, so that the lights turn on automatically at a different brightness depending on the time and then go out after 5 minutes. After a few days, I began to notice that when the brightness was set to 100%, the lights would not go out after the set 5 minutes. For some reason, the only way I managed to solve this was to set the brightness to 99%. So now that the sensor is triggered, the lights turn on at 99% during the day, and after 5 minutes from the last trigger … the lights go out. Does anyone have any idea why I have that 100% light problem? It’s not very important to have them 100%, but it’s weird.
