There is no connection between the force field and this issue. I can offer no
explanation other than to tell you something else is going on there that you
didn't account for.

Don't mix and match force fields. This is fundamentally unsound. Specific pair
interactions (1-4) or nonbonded interactions (NBFIX) are highly tuned for
specific interactions. Don't make any assumptions based on things that "look
