Why do tasks marked as complete show up in my past due list?

As I understand it, the reason that these tasks are showing in “my Tasks” under “Past Due” is because they have a due date assigned to them (which is now past). What I don’t understand is that the tasks have been marked complete, so they are not past due - as they are complete.

When I go to “My Tasks” I am presented with an expanded list of many many task that are all greyed out (compete) - is there a reason for this? (perhaps I’m not understanding how its supposed to work?)

Do I need to be removing the due date from a task once it is complete? (seem an odd UX) If so is there a way to automate removing the due date when task marked as complete?

It seems in My Tasks you have no filter enabled to only see incomplete tasks.

Top right there is a filter. On there under „completion status“ select incomplete tasks. Then the completed tasks will be hidden.
