Yeah, it automatically assigns the CIDR based on the address class.
If you don't tab or click outside the IP address box before clicking
the Save button, you end up with a mask you didn't intend to have.
In pfsense, I'm pushing for removing that behavior entirely, and
defaulting to /24 for everything. Would make sense, IMO, to do the
same here. Practically nobody should want a 10. network to be a /8,
and /24 is a much more sensible default.
