Unwanted snapshots marked with "@--head--"

Hello, I'm new to the forum and new to using Proxmox, I have a problem that from time to time automatic backups are made with the "@--head--" mark (what is that? :) ), they take up space and I can only delete them from the terminal, but after some time they appear again. Could someone tell me how to turn it off?1695368250993.png
those are not created by PVE.. are you using "zfs send" yourself (or via some 3rd party script)? it's the default snapshot name used when receiving a non-snapshot send stream..
