This is from zsh-workers/35718 and the behavior you are seeing assumes
that you have menu-selection enabled (which will cause a much more
extensive set of completion responses to appear in a calendar format).
There was some controversy about this when it was added and discussion
of how to keep it from kicking in if menu selection was NOT enabled,
but I guess it never got fully resolved.

In the meantime, to mostly get your old behavior back:

    zstyle ':completion:*:dates' max-matches-length 0
