Auto save on file opening

Copper Contributor

I am using OneDrive on Windows 11. I manage all my files with OneDrive. I manage the documents with the Windows Explorer file structure on my computer by creating a shortcut via MS Teams or SharePoint.
OneDrive is always in sync mode on my computer. It updates automatically whenever I make changes to any file. But the important detail is "when I update" :)
I have a problem with OneDrive for a while. I don't know if this is due to OneDrive.
When I open any file, the file is somehow automatically saved and synced to OneDrive, even if I don't make any changes to the file. Unfortunately, this way I miss the previous modification date of the file etc.
Of course, I can go and look at this in the version history, but the date of the last permanent file is updated as my current file opening date.
This is not something that happens in every file, but it becomes annoying because I cannot predict when it will happen or not.
Has anyone ever encountered a similar situation and found a solution?
Thank you in advance for your reply.

May I know the path\files was under OneDrive sync? If yes, auto-save will be applied

Thanks for the reply.
The files are under OneDrive sync, but it doesn't happen to all files.
I think it's by default like this and there can be nothing to be done.
