Default VOF convergence in open channel flow

I am simulating an open channel flow, steady simulation. Why all the variable reach the convergence (the residuals of K, epsilon, velocity, etc. reach 10^(-4)), whereas the continuity equation residual is constant at 10^(-1)?
I checked the results and nothing seems to change during the iterations.

Thank you

Have you solved your problem.
For my case the residual increased a lot after 500 iteration. Any tips to fix the problem?
