Still being tracked using Brave for Interest Based Ads

Still getting tracked for Interest Based ads

So I am using Brave Browser on MacOS. I have Duck Duck Go as my default Search Engine and use a VPN. One morning, I am searching for a particular camping stove.

The next day, I am using my tablet and went to an ad heavy website. Whats the first ad I see, for the exact product I searched for the previous day. This product was only searched for the previous day, using Brave browser with Duck Duck Go. I never searched for this product before. I never searched for this product using any other device besides my MacOS, Brave Browser the previous day.

So question is, how is this possibly happening? Is there some settings in Brave I need to enable?

Am I wrong in thinking that Brave does not block this from happening?

Thanks!
