I can reproduce this on the 2.93.0 Alpha, branch: master, commit date: 2021-03-18 08:16, hash: rBaeff59073b23.

Actually, for me, this happens starting from all frames. Toggling the Edit Mode modifier display fixes the problem though.
EDIT: After I toggle the edit mode button in the modifier, it always happens starting from frame 0. Notice that frame 0 is outside the Start and End frame range.

Confirmed. This happens when you starts playback from behind any active gpencil frames.

Added the commit to fix the issue. This patch includes:

  • When adding gpencil line art, new frame will be always on frame 0.
  • Frames before the first existing frame in gpencil object will not have line art result from the modifier (but bake will fill those frames).
