Cubase Entering Record-Enable when not wanted


I’m finding that Cubase (both 8.5 and 9.0) often record-enable a track when I have not knowingly taken any action to make that happen (and when in fact I specifically don’t want it to happen).

This is with punch-ins OFF.

I expect there is probably some aspect of settings or operation that I’m not aware of or understanding correctly.

Has anyone else observed this? Can anyone suggest what action(s) I could take to prevent it?

Is it the arm record on selected track preference?
