It is possible to get conflicting json files.
How this can happen is that an acf-json folder is added to the current theme and there is another load location added using the acf/settings/load_json filter. If a field group is synced from this other location the new version of the group will be saved to the theme folder. However, if the other load location is loaded first then the file there, that is not updated, will be the field group you see when editing pages.
Some theme and plugin developers do this to ensure that only the version of the field group they have provided can be used. In these cases that developer should have set the json files to private so that they cannot be synced. It really is not a good idea to modify acf json files provided from some other source.
