Sorry for the late reply. The patch solves the problem for me, thanks!
Would be great to have this fixed.

Unless you see a bug that I'm not seeing, the behavior looks correct to
me (with the patch applied): The default date (when the user hasn't
entered anything) is the existing timestamp.  Then "." selects today
explicitly, "+" is relative to today, and "++" is relative to the
default date. That's exactly what's promised
inĀ https://orgmode.org/manual/The-date_002ftime-prompt.html and also in
the `org-read-date` doctring. (And I think it makes sense.)
