Default When do you stop kneeling after Communion?

When is the proper time to transition from kneeling to sitting after someone receives Communion? I see many people at our parish who go from kneeling to sitting once the extraordinary ministers of holy Communion return the unused hosts to the tabernacle and lock the door. Others sit after the priest has completed purifying the chalice and paten. Others when the priest returns to his chair after Communion. Others, seemingly at no particular time, but when they have completed their post-Communion prayers (much earlier than any of the above events). Is there a proper time to go from kneeling to sitting?

To the best of my knowledge, the Church does not mandate when kneeling following reception of Communion ends. People are free to return to sitting at any time, especially if kneeling for a long period of time is for some reason problematic for them.
