CREATEPO Workflow acting strange

We are using iProcurement (12.1.3) to create requisitions for non-catalog items.
Business requirement is to create the PO if the req is associated to CPA.

The following attributes were changed in the workflow

The below attributes have been set:

poxwfatc.wft attributes: (PO Create Documents)

Is Automatic Creation Allowed? = 'Y'
Is Automatic Approval Allowed? = 'Y'
Should Contract be used to autocreate Doc? = 'Y'
Should non-catalog requests be autosourced from contract? 'Y'
Is Contract Required on Requisition Line? = 'Y'


poxwfrqa.wft attributes (Requisition)
Send PO Autocreation to Background? = 'N'

But the workflow is acting strange.
There are times when the requisitions that do not have any CPA associated also go ahead and create POs.
This is not required, if there is no CPA associated there should be no PO generated.

The strange point is the behavior is random.
There are couple of times when the PO does not get generated if no CPA is attached.

What could be causing the issue?
