We have a SharePoint choice field named options which allow Fill-in choices and has 3 choices (A + B + C), as follow:-

Now we have inconsistent behaviors for the Choice field which allow Fill-in choices inside modern New/Edit forms compared to Quick Edit.

So when we create or edit list items using the modern list forms >> the options field will list the choices inside the field definition + the choices that have been fill-in by the user ("MY NEW Choice" in our case):-

while if we create or edit an item using the list view Quick Edit, the options field will only show the choices inside the field definition and will exclude the choices that have been fill-in by the user as follow:-

so how we can fix this inconsistency ? and have a standard behavior ? Also is this a bug?

    As far as I know, this is by design and we suggest you select the newly choice value in details panel.
