Phantom tracks Cubase 11 Artist

Last time I did tracks I used a foot pedal on some of them.I had never used one before. I listened to some of those tracks recently after a long time and I found that after all the midi tracks had ended and had no data in them…there was still some instruments going…empty tracks but sound was coming out until I hit stop. I assumed it had to do with the pedal because I had never had that happen before …
what do you think was going on from a technical view???


To me it sounds, like the Pedal Off message is missing.
