In a hierarchy of profiles, changing a parent profile causes the field to change in all child profiles that have not overridden the value of that field. However, validation on modified child profiles does not run.
If this configuration syncs, then validation runs and fails on the other device. If the configuration is saved and reloaded, then loading fails.
This occurs in child profiles options that are governed by parent profile values, that is, all options that have not been changed from the parent default value.
There is no workaround for this issue.
The system now detects changes in a parent profile (the one specified in 'defaults-from') and runs validation to ensure the new inherited values are acceptable on the child profile.
