The way that ACF locations rules work you must pass all of the rules you want met, or set them when creating a group. It does not check rules that are not set.
If you have a rule set for a field group that of
post type is equal to post this is all that will be checked.
To check another rule the location rule needs to be in the rules for that group, for example
prefix end point does not equal new
As an example create a field group and set the location rules of the group to
current user is equal to logged in. When you are logged in this group will appear on all admin pages where ACF is able to add field group. It does not, for example, test to see if is should be on the post edit page or the user profile page.

ACF wouldn’t be so widely used in WordPress if it didn’t have some pretty amazing capabilities. In this article, we look at a few of the features we’ll discuss during “7 things you didn’t know you could do with ACF” at #WPEDecode later this month. https://t.co/5lnsTxp81j pic.twitter.com/Yf0ThPG1QG— Advanced Custom Fields (@wp_acf) March 16, 2023
