That is very odd. I can't replicate your outcome with v12.1 on 64-bit
windows. Might be an issue for tech support.

Since I don't have your data, I tried to replicate this behavior with
public data. My outcome is exactly what I believed should happen:

sysuse tsline2, clear;
gen calories100=calories+100;
gen calories200=calories+200;

tw (tsline calories if day>td(01oct2002)) (tsline calories100 if
day>date("01oct2002", "DMY")) (tsline calories200 if
day>date("01oct2002", "mdy"));
