I haven’t seen anything like this in ACF. My fist guess would be that there is some type of a filter or something that is causing the post to be duplicate rather than updated. The first thing I would do is deactivate other plugins and then if that does not work to try changing to the default WP theme to see if I could narrow down where the incompatibility might be.
