calculated date field shows wrong time if hidden on new entry form

I have question about a problem that has been dragging on for a long time.

I use the hide field formulas on the new entry form to hide fields, that user doesn´t need to see.

Everything work as expected just a date/time filed. " me problems.

If i use as default value Todays date everything works fine, but i can´t hide the field.

If i use the calculated value Now() i can hide the field but it gives me a complete wrong date and time.
I already checked the regional settings of client and sharepoint online. everything is on Central European...

What is wrong?

when a item is created i save the form with above settings.

if the date field "ErstellDat" is hidden on the new entry form (ex. =if([$StatusAnsuchen]=='Pending','false', 'true')

the field gives me a complete wrong date on saving.

if i leave the field visible and set as default value todays date, the date/time is correct.

you can reproduce this behavior.
