That is because your video only contains 2 audio tracks and you want to 
paste in 3 audio tracks. I understand that that behaviour is unwanted.

If you want there is a workaround but I think you wont't like it.
1. Using "Paste Silence" in the Timeline to add empty space where you 
want to insert your new clip (1v+2a).
2. Load in the Viewer window your clip and set In and Out points.
3. With the mouse on the Viewer window press "c" key for copy, or using 
its icon.
4. In the Timeline move the cursor where you want to insert the clip; if 
there are In and/or Out point/s in the Timeline press Ctrl+T shortcut to 
disable them.
5. With the mouse on the Timeline press Ctrl+B shortcut; your clip 
(1v+2a) from the Viewer will be overwrite in the Timeline without moving 
the others edits (video and/or audio).

I prefer another workaround and you can see it in the "How to lengthen 
or shorten a clip" tutorial.
