Why do URLs within assignment submission show up as sticky notes when grading

We recently noticed that when a student submits a doc/pdf to the assignment folder, any links are automatically made into sticky notes when the instructor is grading. This is strange and confusing for instructors.

We've looked through recent updates to see if there is something that might have caused this new and unexpected behaviour, but can't find anything. Does anyone know why this is happening and/or how we can "turn it off"?

Here are a couple screenshots of what we are seeing:

Thanks in advance!
