Bug: Out point set in sequence one frame ahead of current position
When setting in and out points in a sequence by keyboard shortcuts, the out point is set 1 frame ahead of the current position, thus I'll export 1 black additional frame accidentally.

I agree. This is really stupid and I dont know how, but my Premiere started to do this stupid thing after 2021 update. This is not intuitive - basically if I just jump to the end of my project and press "o" - I just add a black frame to my video.
Stupid, really stupid way to do this.

I also think that's unintuitive. You should be able to mark the Out point on what you want to be your last frame, not the one after or before. There should be an option in the settings that allows you to set the out point directly to where your cursor is, not one frame after.

I think this is a bad design and not intuitive. I press down to jump to the end of a clip so I can hit O to mark out, and it includes the first frame of the next clip.
I don't get how that's useful, however common it may be.
How many people are having to go back 1 frame because of this?
I want to export a video ending on fade to white. I go to end of sequence and hit out, but now there's 1 frame of black (nothingness) after my last frame of white. I just don't get where that's useful.
This isn't a bug, this is how all editing software works. The frame in your monitor marks the last frame within the selection.
In the timeline, the playhead sits to the left of the current frame.
It's often easier to use the Mark Clip and especially Mark Selection keyboard shortcuts. The latter especially. What I do is select everything I want in the export, hit Mark Selection, and it sets in/out points to what I want. My key for that is Shift+X but I don't know if it has a default.
