This one threw me the first time I encountered it in v12. It's a behaviour change that is documented here:
From the article:
"Previous versions of FileMaker Pro tried to find all the values that match on each and every keystroke. Now only the first 100 entries that match are displayed along with an ellipsis (...) to indicate that there are more values than can be displayed.
Upon choosing the ellipsis entry, the value list drop down window is updated to show the entire value list that match.
When the drop-down list is re-invoked, it defaults to showing the first 100 entries, regardless of any entry in the field."

Thanks for that Andrew.
I did expect this was the case, which implies it can't be turned off. Users will just have to get used to it.
