Screen Time and Contacts

My daughter has a Phone 8 running 14.4. This phone has Screen Time (ST) enabled and restrictions are on. I have two issues relating to Screen Time and contacts.

1. On her phone she is able to ADD a new contact without prompting for the ST passcode.

2. On my Mac running Big Sur, under Communication, I go to her ST settings, the box is checked "Allow Contact Editing" and under "manage Name iCloud Contacts- ON" and Contacts is 0.

For some reason I am not able to uncheck "Allow Contact Editing" box to disable that feature.

It is odd that she can still go in and create a new contact unless the age plays a role in this situation. She is classified as an adult according to Apple. Perhaps, I need to adjust the age.
