Podcasts not finishing or Smart Mark as Played

Android 12 on a Pixel 6 all standard stock

App is from F-Droid Version 2.4.0

So I noticed this issue after moving from my Pixel 3A to my Pixel 6. I did an export and import for all my podcasts.

Basically many of my podcasts are stopping with seconds left as I’m listening to them. So they aren’t fully playing and they aren’t being smart mark as played (I have it set to 15 seconds).

I have it set to continuously play but of course this is not happening since they aren’t finishing. It is not all my podcasts though. I’m not sure why, maybe they are ones with dead space at the end? For example I’m listening now and the previous one had about 1-2 seconds left when it stopped playing, but one just ended and (last in my queue) and of course play stopped but it is auto-deleted (properly finished, marked as played, and auto-deleted).

all my podcasts are set to download btw, not stream.
