Sigma 35mm F2 DG DN defaults to F4.0 when setting to Auto instead of F2.0.

My Sigma 35mm F2 DG DN always sets itself to F4.0 when i turn the Aperture Ring to "A" instead of F2.0. Can anybody replicate ths behaviour? Is it only my Lens? Why does it do that instead of setting itself to the widest Aperture? I thought it was cause i had used the 70-200 F4 before and the Camera remembers the "lowest" possible Aperture, but i put on a F1.4 Lens and then the Sigma 35 F2.0 and it still goes to 4.0 when i scroll trough the Aperture Ring and end at "A". Kindy bugs me that i then always have to ajust the Aperture.

Gear used: Sony A7III, Sigma 35mm F2 DG DN, Sigma MC-11 with Canon L 70-200/F4.0 and Sigma Art 35mm F1.4.

tldr: Put Sigma 35/F2 DG DN on Sony A7iii and used the Aperture Ring from 2.0 over 22 to A and the Aperture defaults to 4.0 in the Camera instead of 2.0.

Edit: I made a video and uploaded it here (https://www.dropbox.com/s/8jp33rpe2f1pm8p/Video%2017.01.21%2C%2020%2043%2039.mov?dl=0) maybe then it’s clearer. At the end you see me changing it to 2.0, then use the lens ring and after 22 comes 4.0 when I reach „A“. It would make sense to keep 22 or change to 2.0. but 4.0... I don’t know... 🤷🏻‍♂️
