Greetings from Syncfusion support.
We have checked with the provided code snippet and you have set a date value to the value property of DatePicker component. If we set any value, the datePicker will take that as initial value and that value will be displayed on load. By default, our DatePicker component will take the Today’s date as default date. So, we suggest you not to set the value property on initial rendering.
Please see our online sample for DatePicker which shows nothing in the field and today’s date is set as default in the dropdown calendar,
