Weird increase in brightness in some parts of the image

In the photo I’m currently editing, there’s an area of the subject (wearing dark clothing) where the brightness is increased if I use the sharpen tool. No idea what’s going on here. Shows up with standard and strong models but not lens blur or motion blur models.
