Hey there, 
Im having a problem using the matereference feature for our bolts and rings, (our custom made toolbox parts).
Whenever I try to add a part by snapping a ring on a hole, the mates are added automaticly.

 

But after I rebuild, Solidworks somehow decides to add another bunch of mates, mostly double or on faces which doesn't make any sense. Please see the images below.

I tried closing and reopening Solidworks, even rebooting my PC.
It does it with all parts having matereferences. 

Does anyone know?
