Isn't that annoying? This is a built-in behavior of the RSyntaxTextEditor editor used by the Arduino IDE. There is currently no way to turn it off, though Arduino has requested that such an option be added:
https://github.com/bobbylight/RSyntaxTextArea/issues/151

The silly thing is that the editor adds these annoying extra asterisks, but then Tools > Auto Format takes them away!:

It is possible to configure the AStyle formatter tool to not remove the asterisks with a custom configuration, but that's going in the wrong direction.
