Why does the data source revert back to the original data source in pro

I have two people in my organization who just recently migrated a couple mxd's into an ArcGIS pro workbook. They had also changed the MXD's source location from a personal geodatabase to a SDE database prior to migrating it into pro.   After the MXD was migrated into ArcGIS pro,  all the data reverts back to the original location to where the data is stored.  To fix this problem,  I had them either delete or rename original geodatabase and then reset the data source.  Is that normal?   Is there something we're doing wrong when importing into ArcGIS pro or is it a bug that needs to be addressed so we do not have to have this problem in the future.   We tried both with a script and straight importing using the desktop icon.   We also tried using the the script that automatically updates the new location and still have the issue.   Please advise
