BUG: Outlook autoformatting text with heading styles

For the last few Insider Fast updates I've faced an annoying bug.
If I don't end a paragraph with a full-stop or comma before hitting return (twice) Outlook autoformats the paragraph with a heading style.

My default font is set to Georgia 11pt.

If I start an email 'Dear Tim' then press enter twice it autoformats 'Dear Tim as Calibri Light 16pt in blue.

The only advice Support could give was to use the Preference reset tool, but this wipes all any categories or rules you have set up, and I have around 50 of each so am reluctant to do this.

I have no add-ins installed and have tried turning off and on all the autoformat options, to no avail. I've come to the conclusion it's a bug, but happy for someone to point out my user error if it means I can fix it!

    This now seems to be fixed in the latest Insider Fast release (16.24 (190318)).
