Figma Component Weirdness

Hello Fellow Designers!

Currently running into a really strange issue with using Figma components at moment, basically, whenever I add new variants to a pre-existing component, all instances of that component that are currently being used in my artboards (frames) design get updated with the new variant, even though i did not want them to get updated, i just wanted to add a new variant to the master component without it affecting any of the instances.

Has anyone else run into this issue, and more importantly what’s the solution to stop that from happening?
