That's the desired behavior.

My point is that after moving a marked clip/group, the red frame doesn't 
always disappear. Because when you adjust a clip or group in the 
timeline, it doesn't always find the right position right away. 
Consequently, you have to move the same clip/group a few times until it 
fits, but every time you move it, the red frame disappears. I have to 
click the clip/group again to be able to move it. But exactly this 
causes too many clicks which would be unnecessary. As long as I don't 
click on another clip/group in "Clear before toggle" mode, the red frame 
should remain, even after a move action.
As soon as I click on another clip without CTRL (with "Clear before 
toggle" active), the red frame disappears from the old clip/group and is 
visible on the new clip/group.

Thx, good idea.
