I’m curious, because I have never seen this. I have another question.
Do yu have any acf/load_field filters in place that effect image fields? And are these filters common for you?
The reason I as is that acf/load_field filters can affect the fields during export and import. Or I should say that I have run into an issue with these filters interfering with exports/imports in the past.
