Hi and welcome to the forum!
I cannot reproduce, but we have seen this before. There was a discussion about it not long ago. Can you reproduce it when you restart FreeCAD in the same way?
Thanks for the welcome
Yes, I can reproduce this at a fresh FreeCAD start, even after a PC restart. I also tried 0.19.1, but I had the same problem. I don't remember seeing this in 0.18 before.
It's indeed not catastrophic, just a bit annoying for the first parts of a sketch when you don't have constraints yet and you are trying to select vertices for a coincidence constraint for example. I mostly use box selection because it's much quicker than trying to aim for a small point directly.
By the way, the quickest way to observe this issue for me is just to start a new sketch, immediately try to do a box select and observe if the origin point turns black.
