Might be the 'firmware click emulation' thing, if I'm right about that.
I guess who-t could explain.
"clickpads" are touchpads that don't have their own buttons but they have a
hinge where you depress the whole touchpad. Those touchpads only have a left
button, the right button is emulated in libinput based on the finger count,
the finger positions and a combination of hope and despair. The libinput doc
has pretty pictures. Well, pictures:
Chris: the previous gsetting was 'default' so if you ever changed it
manually to 'areas' in the past (e.g. for debugging something), the change
to a different default wouldn't affect you because you already have your
own setting already. I strongly suspect that's the case for you, run this to
gsettings get org.gnome.desktop.peripherals.touchpad click-method
If it says 'areas', you changed it at some point in the past.
