Flush the braking system or your brake booster maybe acting up

Check your brake pressure hoses could be collapsed on the inside causing pressure to remain at brake caliper

But they released. If fluid would be trapped in the caliper it would not release like that unless the relief valve was dispersed

Fluid after awhile trashes that's why once every 2-3 year good to flush
