With ACF Pro, if I need to keep field groups editable in my dev site where I develop plugins so that I can alter them I use JSON files for the field groups in a local JSON file in the plugin. Then I test to see if the field groups exist with a higher priority than ACF uses and if the don’t exist I load the JSON files and add them that way. I do this when I think I might need to change them, although, once you’ve done it enough it’s almost as easy to change them in code, though it get’s complicated when there’s a lot of conditional logic.
