I’m experiencing this as well. Location sometimes resets to ‘Post’ and at the same time other field group settings reset as well, like Style and Label Placement. Happens with my field group that is assigned to appear in an options page. Field group itself is quite large. Well over 200 fields counting accordion fields etc, could that be the cause?
