Why do my MTS sometimes come out during the day? I have two larger ones that I find all the time out during the day.

Most snails can't actually see images and instead see how light/dark something is. Your snails likely come out because they see light. Though honestly snails don't really care whether its night or day, they just sorta do their thing.

I was always told that mts come out when the lights go off at night, so I was confused why I was seeing them at all points of the day

Some of mine used to come out during the day too, but after I put puffers in the tank I would only see them at night. I think they either learned they'd be harassed if they came out during the day (unlikely) or the "day snails" all got eaten and only the night owls survived.
