I wonder if this has something to do with Eset's Application Modification Detection feature: https://help.eset.com/eis/15/en-US/idh_config_epfw_app_content_checking.html . This feature is active when the Firewall is in Interactive mode.

Possibly when this option is at default value:

Quote

Allow modification of signed (trusted) applications – Do not notify if the application has the same valid digital signature before and after the modification.

You won't get a notification and new rules are auto created regardless of if identical rules exist. If the option is disabled, you will get a notification about existing "permissive" rules with an option to keep them.
