Why do my colonies insist on garrisoning my troops when the policy for garrisoning is set to none?

The ways of the troop AI are mystical and capricious.

A few updates back, Elliot put in a hard-coded amount for troops at each colony (four I believe) to
be garrisoned. This was meant to quell the dissent mentioned back then by players that the AI colonies
were not defending themselves well enough against pirate raids. Just FYI.

Its most definitely more than 4 troops garrisoning up. I set my build to troop number to 25 and it garrisons them all

I don't have the game available, but are you sure you are not using a setting which indicates something like "keep 25 troops at this colony"? In which case garrisoning them to avoid them being picked up makes total sense.

For all practical purposes, a troop that is not garrisoned won't be there when needed.
