So, your questions had me take a look at the SecurityConfig.config. We have a custom tool that automatically pushes our files from TFS to our staging server. The logs showed that it was copying over, however, when I actually opened it up, it was not the same. Our tool only copies over files that are changed and marked as read only, and those.config files were not marked read only.
Once we set the whole site to read only, the tool copied over everything as it should be. However, I'm not sure what problems that might cause, if any, with the backed (users, permissions, etc.).
Thanks for your help! I was pulling my hair out trying to figure this out.
