The process is use the fields while I am developing the site. Once it is time to hand off the site to the client I go into my Theme Settings page that has a couple of basic fields and I check mark the “Hide Class Fields” box.
This simply adds a little bit of css to the head of my admin on pages with acf fields and hides those fields with display none. If this would prevent those fields from saving it doesn’t really matter because they are already saved.
