Klck screen timeout

Having an issue with klck that prevents my screen from actually turning off unless I press the power button. The only non-useful solution I've found is to disable the "draw over other apps" setting but that literally disables klck.. manually locking the phone just isn't very practical for me as I get notifications constantly throughout the day and am not always near my phone to turn it back off. Anyone know of any solutions to this?

I have the exact same problem on my Pixel 3a XL running Android 12, I have found no solution and it prevents me from using KLCK. I hope there will be a fix soon.
