A bug that results from new German gendering conventions:

In German nowadays gendering is expressed by an asterix followed by the female appendix. Example:

Verwalter (male)
Verwalterin (female)
Verwalter*in (both male and female)

The block editor interpretes the asterix as beginning of a list and formates the following text respectively.

Hi @pflanzenoma

thank you for the report!

I tried to reproduce the problem, but with the latest WordPress 5.9 I can't see it.

I tried to paste the word and I tried to manually type it. I even tried it with a space before or after the asterisk and the block editor does not make a list out of it.

If the problem is still valid for you, please re-open the ticket and share more details on how to reproduce the problem. Thank you again!
