Bafang geared Hub motors should free wheel

Was working on my E-Cells Awd fat bike ,and I gave the front wheel a spin to find that it only rotated maybe two rotations and had a kind of « whirr sound » , so I gave the back wheel the same spin and it rotated endlessly and made only the pleasant clicking sound, then I did the same to another bike with a Bafang hub 750 motor and it also rotated endlessly with the pleasant click sound

So I am thinking that my front 500 watt motor gears are not releasing and the motor remains engaged causing resistance even when coasting.
Thoughts ?
