Symptoms

In a VCP 12.1.3.9.2 instance:
Launched an EDD Constrained Plan (Without Detailed Scheduling)

It seems that this scenario is working as expected with a Constrained Classic Plan, but not with a Constrained Without Detailed Scheduling Plan.

Note the following sourcing of Item AS18947 / Org D1
transfer from Org M1, Rank 1
transfer from Org M2, Rank 2
transfer from Org M3, Rank 3

The plan is recommending to source it from M1 and M2, but not from M3.
On Hand in M3 is pegged to excess.

The following exists for this item in the D1 org:
planned order demands AND
planned orders to source (buy from) from both orgs M1 and M2.

The plan creates planned orders in the rank 1 and 2 orgs, before considering the onhand in the rank 3 org.
The onhand in the rank 3 org is pegged to Excess.

The following is the main issue:
There is not enough onhand in the rank 1 and 2 orgs to cover the demands in org D1.
There are planned orders sourcing from both the rank 1 and rank 2 orgs, with quantities exceeding the onhand in those orgs.
However, there are no planned orders in D1, to source from the rank 3 org.
The onhand qty in the rank 3 org is pegging to Excess.

The questions are:
Why is the onhand in the rank 3 org pegging to Excess?
Why is there not a planned order in D1 sourcing this qty from the rank 3 org instead?

Note the following profile values:
MSO: EDD Scheduling Window Control = 0.5
MSO: Lead Time Control = Violate minimum processing times to meet demand due date
MSO: Enable Decision Rules = Yes

Also, for this item, the item attributes appear to have the same values (per org).
