Default date value in ArcGIS Online says 'Invalid Date' which defaults to 1899

We have a feature service which is published to ArcGIS Online. We didn't specifically set default dates in Pro before publishing.


We noticed that new records had these dates set to 30 Dec 1899.

When we check the field information in ArcGIS Online, we noticed that the "default value" says "Invalid Date". However, if we open up the feature service in Pro and look at it in the Design Fields view, it says the default value is "30 Dec 1899".


What we actually want is for the date to default to a null/undefined value. Can anyone explain a) what is currently going on with the "invalid date" vs "30 dec 1899" confusion, and b) how would we change this to default to null?
