Not really, but here are some things to think about.

Do you have any confirmation that it ever actually gets changed back to

Assuming it does get changed back to 'Confirm', can you identify any
pattern in when it reverts to 'Confirm and Approve'. E.g. does it
happen on the same day of the week or month or the same time of day or
whenever you visit the admin interface for the list?

Is there possibly some cron or other process that periodically runs
bin/config_list or some bin/withlist script that might be doing this?
