Because that's what it's designed to do. You can ask why a cat doesn't bark but no-one will understand why you expect it to. That's what dogs are for.

The AutoExpand property of the ComboBox can sometimes cause things to work unexpectedly.

If that is not it, there are a few different implementations of filtering a ComboBox as the user types. Would you copy and paste your code here that you are using? Otherwise there is really nothing for us to go on.
