Power Profiler Kit II with nRF52833

OS: Windows 10

NCS: 2.0.0

nRF Connect for Desktop: v3.12.0

Power Profiler: v3.5.3

We are starting work on battery optimization on our product.  I setup the PPK2 with my nRF52833 DK to learn the PPK2 and implementing nRF52 low power modes in the Zephyr world. 

I am running the Zephyr "System Off" demo on the DK.  https://developer.nordicsemi.com/nRF_Connect_SDK/doc/2.0.0/zephyr/samples/boards/nrf/system_off/README.html

I setup the PPK2 with the DK and ran the demo, but I am seeing really odd results.  As you can see, while the demo is going through it's stages, the PPK2 data logger looks correct.

However, approximately three seconds after then nRF52833 goes into "system off" mode, the PPK2 data logger displays the below, until a button 1 or reset button press.

Since I am new to nRF52 low power modes in Zephyr (long history with the old SDK) and this is the first time using the PPK2, I am unclear what I am seeing.  I have attached main.c from the  "system off" project for reference.  Does anyone have an explanation for what I am seeing?  Thanks in advance.
