Footprint shows description/datasheet/footprint info even though it's not selected

I’ve got a old v7 project I have opened in v8.0.1 and not sure if this if a bug or I’ve click on some setting to change this behavior. (Project was possibly even create in v6 and then saved to v7, and now to v8)

On my footprint I have a footprint/description and datasheet text, but have unticked show for these:


However when clicking on the footprint in the PCB I can see this information displayed:

Even stranger is if I set the 3 tick boxes to show then this disabled the text on the footprint:


This seems to be something specific to this project. (I don’t see this behaviour in my other projects)

Have I stumbled upon a bug?
