Electric indent mode was set to t in emacs 26 or 25. At the time, org
did not honour the setting of electric indent mode. A lot of the
confusion around changes to indentation and org-adapt-indentation has
arisen due to changes in org mode to make it compatible with other emacs
modes i.e. make it honour the setting of electric-indent-mode. While
I think this was the right move for the long-term as it makes org mode
behave like other modes, I don't think the impact from this change was
fully understood at the time. This has led to considerable confusion and
changes in default settings for org-adapt-indentation to reduce the
friction for users. While the outcome has likely made org mode more
consistent for new users, it has caused some issues for existing users
and it may take some time for the shock waves to dissipate.

There has been a number of threads about this and org-adapt-indentation
over the last 12 months or so. You might find some help looking through
some of those threads.
