Microsoft raw codec /photo viewer

I have the microsft raw codec installed which allows you to browse raw files showing a preview image with photo viewer. I was looking  at some samples from the new Panasonic 9mm and noticed that on opening it showed you the corrected file and a second later jumped to showing the uncorrected raw file. I thought this might have been due to the newness of the lens on the GH6.
However on trying A selection of other lenses from various makers it did the same thing. . Some examples firstly the 9mm on GH6 17mm pro on Pen F , Sony 24-105mm on A7rII and 14-30mm F/4 on Nikon z7

Has it always done this ? and I have just not noticed The other photo software on my PC is PS and DXO pureraw . This is the result of clicking on the images and selecting view with photo viewer no other software open
