Chrome ignores download settings

Galaxy S22 Ultra. I have ask where to download and ask when to download enabled (curious how that works). It just saves the stock name in the downloads folder. It used to let me name the file first. I don't care about where it saves but I want to name them on download not edit later. I have tried both off and one on at a time. I uninstalled chrome updates, tried it, applied updates back and tried it. I've rebooted and cleared cache. I went through my old phone Note 9 and put every chrome setting exactly the same and they're both using v99.0.4844.73

The only thing I can think of is my old phone has an sd card and this doesn't so Chrome is like you only have one place to pick so I'm not asking.
