Studio: Double Exposure when Exporting a Group

I am getting an odd, double exposure when I try to export a group of layers.
  1. I created a map (1) and grouped all the elements. The background of the map is a blue at 20% opacity.
  2. I duplicated map (1) and created map (2) group. I then changed all the elements and reused it further down on the artboard.
  3. When ever I export map (2) I can see the original map (1) showing through (because the background is at 20% opacity).
  4. If I change the background opacity to 100% and export I dont see this issue. Its only showing because the background is transparent.
  5. I then duplicated map (2) creating map (3) and changed the information again and changing its location on the artboard.
  6. If I export map (3), I now see map (2) showing through behind it.
My guess is that when you duplicate a group, a snapshot of the data/state is being taken. When you go to export that snapshot is being exported along with the current state of the group.
I started playing with this a little bit more. After I did all of the above I went back and exported the original map (just to check). When I exported map (1) I can now see map (2) and (3) showing through with (1). 
I then exported an unrelated asset and everything was good.
I then went back and exported map (2) and things were good.
I then exported map (1) and it had map (2) showing through.
