Apple Music BTT Touch Bar feels like redrawing on top of default

Describe the bug
I added a few Apple Music Touch Bar triggers (previous/next song, show lyrics) and when I activate the app it first shows the default Touch Bar for Apple Music and then a BTT Touch Bar. It's just a slice of a second but I feel like it's a bug.

I also have the issue with Apple Music when I expand the macOS Control Strip and press X on the left to close the Strip, Apple Music gets a default Touch Bar set instead of my custom BTT one. Any ideas what I did wrong here?

Affected input device (e.g. MacBook Trackpad, Magic Mouse/Trackpad, Touch Bar, etc.):
Touch Bar

Device information:

  • Type of Mac: MacBook Pro M1 2020 13"
  • macOS version: 12.1
  • BetterTouchTool version: 3.670

Actually, this is the same with every application! Is there a system-wide setting to fix it?

I'm currently not on a Touch Bar Mac, but I think the setting is in System Preferences => Keyboard => Touch Bar shows.... and needs to be set to "App Controls"

Yup, I have it on, with Control Strip ticked! It still "overrides" the default one.

Did some more testing and it seems like it's because I have the macOS Control Strip enabled (I like having it!). If I disable it and switch between two apps that are BTT-exclusive, the "redrawing" doesn't happen. Makes sense?
