Auto-complete value selections appending wildcards



The issue is that after selecting the option from the list in drop-down from Autocomplete, wild card(? symbols) are getting appended in the email ID. The same appears even in the clipboard. 

But before selection is made, that is, while viewing the options there are such no wild card(? symbols) seen. Also user observed that this issue is coming only when auto complete is placed inside the repeat grid.
