Windows 10 x64 Build 1803, Bitlocker Enabled after fresh install

We are running into a strange issue with Windows 10 x64 Build 1803. When we install Windows from scratch and we chose an offline account it shows the C drive with BitLocker Encrypted. I could see this happening if I logged in with a Microsoft account but not with a local account. See Pictures below. What can I do to fix this issue?

Referance From Microsoft's website.
"Note: BitLocker automatic device encryption is enabled only after users sign in with a Microsoft Account or an Azure Active Directory account. BitLocker automatic device encryption is not enabled with local accounts, in which case BitLocker can be manually enabled using the BitLocker Control Panel."

Here is what I found in the bios.

Mcknife, we have tried both installations from scratch and custom installs and we get the same behavior. Dell has no idea why this is happening and this is from their top level engineers.

Thanks
I turned off TPM and reinstalled Windows and the "Bit Locker Encrypted" is gone. This still makes no sense because on other computers it is enabled and the "Bit Locker Encrypted" does not show up enabled.
Turning off the TPM worked.
