Does anyone have any idea where I can look to understand that?

Let us imagine this simple org file :

#+NAME: first
#+begin_src org
- an item
  - subitem


If the cursor is at the last line and I want to insert an org block,
let's say an example, using org-tempo feature, I can type =<e=
followed by tabulation.

In that case I get something like 

#+NAME: second
#+begin_src org
- an item
  - subitem


However if I get indentation role (for instance in exports) well I do
not expect that but instead something like:

#+NAME: third
#+begin_src org
- an item
  - subitem


Are my expectations (and thus my use of indentation by org-mode
understandings) wrong or is it a bug?

In the same spirit if before trying that I type tabulation then =<e=
then tabulation again, nothing is inserted, aka org-tempo seems to work
only when cursor is at the beginning of line.

Am I right? Is it a feature or a bug?

I expected that the example block would have been inserted /correctly/
indented as in my third example above.

The only solution I found for getting things right is to type spaces
instead of tabulation to let my cursor go to the right column.

Let us consider this snippet.

#+NAME: fourth
#+begin_src org
- an item
  - subitem

If the cursor is in the =H= position, then if I type =<e= then
tabulation everything seems right and I get the same result as in

Any help would appreciated.

I use GNU Emacs 26.3 from Debian GNU bullseye (testing) and what I
think is the last org-mode version from ELPA.

Org mode version 9.3.7 (9.3.7-55-gba2405-elpa @ /home/bruno/.emacs.d/elpa/org-20200907/)
