After migrating WP, does it redirect to the old domain?

To transfer to a new domain, in the admin panel I changed the site addresses to a new domain.
But when I go to this new domain, it redirects me to the old one.

I copy the same instructions for everyone who asks the same thing - "how to solve WordPress problems after a manual transfer":
In the modern world, WordPress does this:
https://wordpress.org/plugins/duplicator/ - put a plugin.
We go into it, click "Create package". Next, next, next.
We get installer.php and archive. Upload them to a new hosting (domain, folder - it doesn't matter). Run site.com/installer.php. Enter a new username and password for the database.
Next, next, next.
At the end, follow the instructions on the screen - log in to the vp, resave the permalinks. Delete the installer files and the archive.
Everything. Everything has been moved. No problems with paths, etc.

First option: Download the database in sql. Open it in notepad++. Press ctrl+h to replace the old domain with the new one throughout the file. Then you delete all the data from the database and import the modified file.
Second option: In wp-config.php (located in the root folder) you write 2 lines:
define('WP_HOME','new domain');
define('WP_SITEURL','new domain');
Perhaps there is some kind of SEO plugin that stores the readerects in the database.

Stop transferring sites to production by hand, 21st century.

Look for the domain in the database.
