I don't know.

BUT, you can open up the properties palette and manually delete custom 

I'm sorry, I know that's a bit of a pain in the bum

Looks look a system thing (Mac High Sierra) but I’ve never seen it before and only just changed to LC9.0.1. Any suggestions as to how to stop this major annoyance would be appreciated - or at least configure it if it really is a new LC ”feature".
