You can disable auto-completion for * if you want and it seems to happen only if there is whitespace before the star.
It’s the symbol for convolution:

$ for dollar or a
$ for starting a formula.
If you use a lot of convolutions, I would disable the auto-pair of
Thanks for the replies. I’m new to LaTeX and see that I should be using
\times for multiplication. This can probably be closed. Yes, I do have auto-completion enabled.
