Breaking Permissions and Assigning Unique Permissions on a SP Library

Hello,
I have a situation where I have a sharepoint list that creates a SharePoint Library.
When the libraray is created, I break permissions and assign unique permissions with a custom security group.
Everything is working but something is causing the library to not only use my custom permissions but it is adding me as a separate entry in the library that is not in the group.

Below are my steps:

New Top Level Security Group:

As you can see it added me outside the security group and I didnt tell the workflow to do that.

Hello @golfnutt82 ,

I would say that it's not adding you, but keeping you there during the process. I'd add HTTP requests to explicitly remove all permissions before them again.
