When I change some Civi settings they do not get applied. It seems to be only when deselecting some checkboxes. For example, in Custom Fields I deselect: Collapse this set on initial display. It looks like its saved but when I go back to the settings it is still ticked.

I can tick: Collapse this set in Advanced Search. hit save and it stays ticked. But when I untick the box and it remains ticked.

When I deselect: Is this Custom Data Set active? - The settings are saved.

This also happens in the Edit Scheduled Reminder settings page. I untick: Record activity for automated email and hit save. When I go back into the settings for the reminder it is still ticked.

There are no obvious logs. CiviCRM 5.25.0, Drupal 7.70 , PHP 7.3.18

Have submitted fix for the issue, can you apply patch from here or you will need to wait for 5.27 release.

For Schedule reminder you can apply the fix as a patch from here.
