@Narender This is a SharePoint default functionality & I don't think you can change this. Make sure below two things to avoid this issue:

  1. Set "Default" value of choice column to blank from column settings (I don't think this will matter when you are dragging files in grouped section. But make sure you have set this to blank in column settings.
  2. Ask users to drag the files & drop outside of grouping. If you have "Unassigned" group, drop files there or drop files next to library name like: ganeshsanap_0-1659719568231.png
