What causes this issue?

You are deactivating extended withholding tax. Note that for any given
company code, you can use either "standard" or extended withholding
tax. However, you can only change from "standard" to extended
withholding tax and not vice versa. Changing to extended withholding
tax involves converting datasets.
Deactivating extended withholding tax leads to large inconsistencies in
the datasets.
