I created a SP group which I am the owner of and added 2 users to it. Since I'm the owner I got both invites but they have a link to our Legal SP site in them, not just info saying they are now members of XYZ group (which I just created). Furthermore, SP automatically granted permissions to one of the users to the Legal site!

I checked the default groups for the Legal site and they are what they should be and not associated with the new group I created.

Where should I look to troubleshoot this more? Thank you for the help.

Per my test, I can reproduce your issue.

It’s by default that the user grant access to the site, since the site is shared with the users when we add them to the group.

To not grant the site permission to these users, I recommend you not granting permissions to this group before join these users.
