Shows the unexpected behavior in Safari 17.4, and the the expected behavior in a Chromium browser

I've found an unusual behavior in Safari 17.4.

When the brightness() filter is applied to an element, for a split second the element's brightness becomes extremely bright, before settling down to the brightness specified by the filter. 
See the attached video. The issue does not appear in screen captures, so I took a video of the screen using a phone.

For a moment the element gets so bright that it appears "whiter" than every other element onscreen. It seems to activate the HDR layer of the display panel for moment (I'm using a 2021 MacBook Pro with M1 Pro).
It then "quiets down" and adopts the correct brightness value specified by the CSS filter.
The effect isn't as bad on iOS, but is definitely still there.
The effect does not appear in screen captures, so I wonder if it's triggering something in the OS or hardware level.

I've attached a video showing this issue.
The URL I used for testing is here:

Let me know if there's any way I can help!
