Holding to sprint ain't workin' right

The Sprinting in this game is not working as intended. I have the toggle turned off but when I tap sprint, it still runs without changing back to walk unless I manually stop. I am pretty sure, when the game says that I would have to hold to sprint, I would actually have to hold.

I am finding it irritating as it is ruining my flow of movement and combat when I can’t properly control my movement.

Anyone know what is going on?
