Gray "star" ratings in Apple Music?

Where do they come from, and how do I get rid of them?

Example:


These gray stars are cuts from the same album as the red stars, but I never "stared" them.

I think is is Apple Music's guess at what you would rate them.
You can manually "erase" them.

Thanks Apple for "helping".

In iTunes you’d “Get Info” to change them. Or you can choose not to show them. Likely similar in Apple Music, but I’m not certain.

Apparently, the average rating of songs you have rated on the album, is the rating on the songs you have not rated.
It defaults to on, but Album Rating can be turned off.
It should be the default IMO.

Nope, clicking and dragging across them ("erasing") has no effect; the gray stars remain.

In "Info" these cuts show NO stars.

I had/have "Album Rating" unchecked, but I still get these gray stars.

I don't have an OS with Music, but you could try running this in Script Editor to see if it may work:

tell application "Music" to set (tracks whose rating kind is computed)'s rating to 0

Edit: Oops, I think you mean the streaming service and not app that replaced iTunes. If so, the code will do nothing for you.
