Default wall adhesion and flow velocity

Dear all,

I'm using wall adhesion with a fixed wetting angle at a wall in a cube.

The wetting process is working fine without any problem and I can see the velocity vectors that cause the climbing of the fluid at the wall.

My problem is that the veloctiy never stops even there is no higher climbing of fluid due to wetting anymore.

Does anybody know what is causing this velocity of the fluid during the simulation? I would have expected that the velocity stops when full wetting has been reached.

Many thanks for any reply/answer
