Hole Wizard holes changing to all one size

Has anyone else experienced all of the holes from a single standard and type changing to a single size in models?  I'm not certain if it is because of the functionality in SW 2018 or something in the hole wizard database because it seems to have started when I created a number of new threads in the Hole Wizard/Toolbox.  I had thought it was only for ANSI Inch standard threaded holes reverting to a 1 3/4"-8 NC if I edited the hole feature but now I'm finding all ANSI Metric thread holes are changing to M14 if I edit the feature and I haven't modified the Metric tables so I'm thinking it's something with the SolidWorks Toolbox "Preserve Settings" or "Transfer Settings" functionality.  I had this set to Transfer settings which should be less likely to cause this to happen but I'm just wondering if anyone else has seen this.

 

It's gone from an annoyance to a serious issue when a drawing was released and manufactured with the wrong hole size for a bolt pattern.
