The target marker separation operation was scheduled for September 5, but has been postponed for reasons associated with the spacecraft operation (the spacecraft condition is normal). For further details, please see this article on the Hayabusa2 website:

In an operation today (August 26), the sample catcher was stored in the re-entry capsule (see figure). The sampler and capsule teams gathered to watch and the operation was completed successfully. The capsule is now ready for Earth return!
