Change post slug and seems like there is an auto redirection

just wanted to check, im using cloudways as the host provider.

Im in a junction where im updating older posts titles and url slugs.

I was learning the whole shpeel of redirections etc. When i changed the title and url, i went to google to double check the 404, but instead when clicking the old slug link, my site automatically redirected to the new url. I double checked on other devices and did the same.

Is this something cloudways auto did or? am I missing something? Do I need to do anything else like change something in Google Search Management console?
