HI,
I tried to replicate this behaviour in my org.When I type the letters,  <apex:pa I am prompted with suggestions and when I click enter, I see the tags are appropriately inserted. I believe in your case,this is happening because the suggestion of <apex: page> is not being highlighted in blue as below

You might want to click the right arrow when suggestions are shown to make the selection instead of enter to fix the issue.

Hope this helps you. Please mark this answer as best so that others facing the same issue will find this information useful. Thank you
