My first question would be; Why using TIB_DateTimePicker.
Using TIB_Date (or my own TDateTimeEnh control) is much
preferred and their operation is much more consistent
with database access.

But, presuming you need to use DateTimePicker, we may need
more details. For example; is the ShowCheckBox option True?
Are you talking about the greyed out date showing when the
date is null (the Checked option is false) ?

I think you may find the behaviour you are seeing is part
of the the VCL/API control behaviour and that this is out
of the control of IBO.
