Google Analytics unnaturally low bounce rate

There was a known issue in the extension where Product Impression and Product Actions were handled via one tag in Tag Manager. This caused sending additional event if you have any product listing module, or banner module on the home page. Since the tag was set as interactive, Google Analytics register it as action event and your bounce rate will get low.
