I update the theme and would like to not have to merge in data edits to my new branch.

The data (content) has always been saved in your theme files and named starting with snippets/sa-.  If those files get copied over, you're set.

However, there is a way to activate saved data to metafields.  These can persist across all themes. By adding atb_use_meta and atb_use_theme_based_meta to your site schema, you can then go to your site settings and turn it on.  Perhaps, the reason you are noticing a change is because you had added it in the past and it is now turned off.

Add this to config/settings_schema.json if it is not already present.

,
  {
    "name": "SectionsAnywhere",
    "settings": [
      {
        "type": "checkbox",
        "id": "atb_use_meta",
        "label": "Use Metafields for Sections Anywhere",
        "info": "Save data to meta",
        "default": false
      },
      {
        "type": "checkbox",
        "id": "atb_use_theme_based_meta",
        "label": "Use Metafields for Current Theme Only",
        "info": "With each theme data is different",
        "default": false
      }
    ]
  }

A copy of the code is in your snippets/atb.liquid file.
