I think it might be slightly more complicated.

For me, here is what I would like

1. Draws and planning data indented according to the headline level
(i.e. headline-data)

2. No indentation on 'normal' lines UNLESS I indent the first line of
the paragraph/block. Then, once I do indent that first line, after
hitting return, I can hit tab and it will indent to the same level as
the proceeding line.

I thought this was the behaviour I use to have before org was updated to
comply with electric-indent mode. I could be wrong.

Currently, if I have org-adaptive-indent set to 'heading-data, if I
manually indent a line, I cannot indent subsequent lines to the same
level. Tab does nothing and I have to hit spaces.

I need to go back through the possible combinations to make sure I
didn't miss something. However, it seems I can have drawers/planning
lines indented to the headline level with org-adaptive-indent set to
heading-data, but then cannot indent individual paragraphs/blocks inside
the heading with tab or I set org-adaptive-indent to nil and manually
indent the draw/planning lines and then can manage content indentation
as I use to.

None of this is critical as it is really just aesthetics (i.e. does not
affect exports), but it did seem to be more DWIM before than it is now.
