TCP much larger than 1460 bytes?

I do not understand, why a see a lot of packets much larger than 1460 bytes. On different Win10 devices in my LAN. The network adapters on the devices are set to MTU 1500, switch has MTU 1518. No device in my LAN has MTU more than 1518 bytes. The MSS in the SYN-packets show 1460 bytes. Why are there packets with much more than 1460 bytes?
