Track created on right side of playhead

Just downloaded version 3110 and appreciate as usual the excellence of this great software. I am somewhat surprised when I record a midi track after I stop the recording the track is created on the right side of the play-head. It can however be moved in its original position vie the menu. I am certain that I am the culprit of this behavior. Please advice if possible. Thanks

Once I enabled smart mode it places the created track in the right spot.
