You’re going to have to contact the developers (WPEngine) on this one. The “acf-disabled” status is added by ACF and applied to field groups and fields when a field group is disabled. It should not be applied to queries for posts other than post types managed by ACF. In my mind this is a bug adding this post status to all post types. You can contact them here or open a ticket on your account.
