Rotation selection button Craziness

every once in a while this button, circled in red, either changes modes on me or all together greys out. does anyone know why? it drives me nuts!

if it's greyed out i usually need to relaunch max then it comes back.

it has three modes:
Use Pivot Point Center
Use Selection Center
Use Transform Coordinate Center

From max help:
Note: The transformation center mode is set on a transform-by-transform basis, so select the transform before
you select the center mode.
If you do not want the center setting to change, turn on Customize menu Preferences General tab Reference Coordinate System group Constant.

It's under chapter "Basics "- Moving, Rotating, and Scaling Objects...
It is same for 2012 and 2020.

And when you are animating, you'll have to use the original pivot.
