This is quite strange. I did a search of the entire Local By Flywheel directory where this dev site is currently being worked on, and the only “acf/load_field” or “acf/prepare_field” that weren’t referenced in the actual ACF files were entirely unrelated, and referenced different fields. (And there were very few of them in the first place.) I suppose the investigation will have to continue.
