Project Finish Date gets overwritten by unknown process - Help?

We use 12.0.4 and have found that our project finish dates get automatically reverted to the latest finish date of its task(s). Does anyone know the process that causes this?

We don't use ETCs on our projects or tasks and typically have a single task per project to enable time tracking. We believe that if we set the project's ETC >0, the unknown process will not revert the project's finish date. But we typically don't set ETC values so this is percieved as unnecessary overhead.

I would expect the project finish date to be independent of its tasks' dates but that does not appear to be the case. We'd like to identify the process that imposes the task dates upon the project's finish date and modify it.

thanks,
Haig
