Creating New Project From Template - Data Source Changes, Why?

I created an ArcGIS Pro project loaded with several vector datasets, all stored in a single geodatabase, and saved on a shared drive. I created a folder connection using the full UNC path to the geodatabase, and created a connection to the actual geodatabase. In Catalog, I selected "Add to Favorites" and "Add to New Projects." All of the vector layers use the full UNC path as the data source.

 

I then saved this project as a template.

 

When I create a new project from this template, all of my layers are broken, and the Data Source is changed to the newly created database for this new project.

 

How can I enable the template to use the original Data Source for the layers?
