Could be why I’ve not seen the issue. Usually when I’m cloning a field and making it seamless I use something like “Clone of XXX” as the label so that I can see at a glance that it’s a clone and what it is a clone of. ACF automatically makes the field name “clone_of_xxx” which I don’t worry about because I’ll never use it.
