I have some weird behavior on my MacBook Pro running Big Sur 11.2.3 (20D91). When I login to any user, after Log Out or Reboot I see "Emoji & Symbols" input method in the list of activated input methods (something similar to described here). After I remove it and then Reboot it comes back. I tried to create a new user and for it "Emoji & Symbols" presents with the same behavior.

Also, I tried to remove both files:

rm ~/Library/Preferences/com.apple.HIToolbox*
rm /Library/Preferences/com.apple.HIToolbox*

After I reboot and Login I see English and "Emoji & Symbols" layouts.

And in addition to described behavior sometimes it is very hard to delete this "Emoji & Symbols" layout. It stays inactive there:

Has anyone experienced this issue? Are there are any workarounds?
