I was just about to get my game ready for release (in Beta in Play console) so I changed all my adunits from test ads to real ones.
The ads work and serve up real ads, however, they all show "Test Ad" in a little grey box at the top center of each ad - just like test ads do.
Is this expected since I am still in Beta and not released to the world on the play store? Or have i done something incorrectly?
Searched but "test" is far too common of a phrase so I get no useful hits.

Here is a screenshot I put on imgur showing the issue. Testers get other ads like Dell, Garden Scapes, fishdom, etc.all with the "test ad" at the top.
Welp this was my own doing.
It seems I had the "test ad" flag set in Construct 3. So even though I was serving real ads it would overlay the "test ad" on it.
Though real ads were served, no clicks were registered in AdMob, so I guess something happens in the backend so it knows.
Unchecking this gets rid of the "test ad" overlay.
