Password generator inaccurate

I was playing around with the random password generator in the latest BitWarden app running on an updated iOS.

I noticed that when specifying a 6 character password, it actually generates a 7 character password - see image. Minimum numbers = 3, Minimum Special = 2.

Is this a known issue?

It’s because you’ve said it must contain upper- and lower-case letters, as well as a minimum of three numbers and two special characters. 3 numbers + 2 specials + 1 upper + 1 lower = 7 chars. It is impossible to generate a six-character password with the options you have selected.
