Auto devops running regardless of settings

Hi there!

We’ve recently started assigning our devs to a merge request that they are responsible for as part of the dev flow update, and noticed that auto devops kicks in on each commit they push towards a merge request. We have custom yaml config defined that goes something along the lines of

  # scripts
  only: qa
  # scripts
  only: master
  # scripts
  only: tags

# similar code for deployment

Auto devops setting is disabled on all of our repos, and I’ve attempted to do the workflows config where everything is set to never, but to no avail.

We would like to disable this behaviour and to continue CI kick in only when pushes happen to our specified branches. Any advice would be helpful, thanks!
