How to "inherit" branch rules?

I’m having trouble figuring how how to propagate rules. Here’s what I want:
We have a branch called ‘dev’. Each module (there are 4) has a rule like this: /feature/* <-> /feature/{1}
When I create a new branch from dev, I would like it to pick up this rule for each module. But instead, new branches are getting created with a rule from a different (unrelated?) branch. It’s a mystery to me how these rules are propagated.

Is there a way to workaround this issue and control which rules are added to new branches?

Hello Jeremy,

could you please tell in what repository this behavior was reproduced? I’ll check by the logs then.
