New tab page: Tracker & Ad block stat count incrementally increases

On Brave [Version 1.34.80 Chromium: 97.0.4692.71], I’ve noticed that the tracker & ad block counter continuously increases. it doesn’t matter if there are any other tabs opend or just the new tab, the counter goes up and up.

The inactive tabs behind the new tab do not indicate any autoplay occurring, and I’m observing the ad block count increase in the new tab page.

From a typical user POV, it seems like unexpected behavior, since it doesn’t appear that other tabs are active, and autoplay is not running.

Expected result:

“tracker & ads blocked” count should remain static with all other inactive tabs in the background.

Does any one have a solution?
