That should be the one. Some processes, e.g. admin mass unsubscribe and
bin/sync_members, have the ability to override this setting. How are
your members getting unsubscribed?

And that's the setting for this, but

Notices are not sent for emergency moderation holds. This is by design
because emergency is for unusual circumstances and it is felt the
notices would be annoying.

However, member moderation is checked before emergency moderation, so
there should be a notice for a post from a moderated member even if
emergency is on.
