Answer

The cause of problem is Handle

It seems you didn’t centralized your Rotation handle therefore it will rotate around Axes of current handle basically when you merge paths or group paths handle doesn’t stay in perfect center and it changes to center of bound so before rotating make sure you allign your Handle to center 🙂 Hope it helps!
