Please Help Clarify Misunderstanding PERSIST and INDEPENDENT

I have some inherited code that I am evaluating to find edge cases where our logic is not properly accounting for all scenarios. As such, I am running many tests with lots of small changes and looking at samples. I created a PERSIST in the code right before the steps where I am making my test changes, but when I look at the ECL Watch page it tells me that it is running sg89-graph2, which is a part of the code well before my PERSIST. Why is it re-running this step? Nothing changed before the PERSIST. My WU is Alpha Dev W20210923-094020.

Additionally, I'm getting a message to AutoWorkflow: Try adding ': INDEPENDENT' to JOIN to common up code between workflow items. I don't have any SEQUENTIAL in my code, so I don't understand what the INDEPENDENT would be doing.

I would need to look at your code and the WU to even try to evaluate what might be happening. Contact me on Teams so you can screen share with me and I'll try to help.
