Whenever and item in the path has mergeinfo and a merge is performed that merge info is updated. (this is supposed to stop happening as of 1.7 I believe). As long as there is merge info on a file that isn't in the parent folder the merge info will remain at the file level. Once they match the merge info in the children (files) will be elided and you won't see this happen again.

Yes, and thanks. What I take from your explanation is that removing the
merge info from these files is both safe and effective in getting where
I want to go (not be bothered by this anymore). Is that right?
Is there any downside?
