LIghtroom Classic: unexpected folder split

On Import, 'Organize by date' not work as expected that was split into (date of shoot) and (next day) folders.
Of course, images are shoot in single day, issue is no related with image count.
I cannot to say issue comes from what version, but almost a year with this issue.

How about checking the time/date setting on your camera.
No camera that I know of has Auto Date/Time settings (Does NOT communicate with the internet to set the date and time automatically).
So if you are getting some images imported to yesterdays date and some from the same shoot imported to todays date then it is the time date setting in the camera.

Of course matched local timezone setting computer with camera,no automatic setting.
In metadata pane shows lightroom seem to treat camera date & time collectly,
This must be a BUG.

You may think what you like but it is not e bug. I have used LrC for over 13 years and Never had this problem other than having the Date and Time set wrong on the camera.

I personally Never change the Time Setting on my camera no matter where I am in the world. It is always set to the time that is used for where I live. This makes it much simpler.

No matter how many years you've been using Lightroom, you have no right to say it's not a bug because you haven't seen it yourself.

On Import, Result of 'File Renaming' template is same file already exists on folder (by continuous shooting etc.) this may be reason to making 'next day' folder.

Does earlier Lightroom versions generate automatically  '-1' '-2' suffix ? (Of course adding 'sub-secconds'  to File Renaming templete is wellcome.)
