FS#22402 - Infinite Immediate Loot and Container Respawn @ Thicket Excavations and Wicked Shipping Fleet Lockup

Description: After scavenging thoroughly, all loot that was lying about (from desk fans, gasoline canisters, and aluminum cans to stimpacks, duct tape, and pipe pistols) will respawn at both Thicket Excavations and Wicked Shipping Fleet Lockup after going directly from either location to red rocket and returning immediately. Containers in these areas respawn loot as well, but the loot is random (per usual). At Wicked Shipping Fleet Lockup, the trailer requiring a key locks itself and the loot trunks inside are refilled with goodies. It is as though these locations have never been visited.

-Fresh install of FO4
-New Game
-Normal Difficulty (Survival tested, as well)
-Unofficial Fallout 4 Patch installed through NMM (have tried with and without)
-No other mods installed
-No console commands used

-No fast travel
-No sleeping or waiting
-Enemies stay dead

Simply loot Thicket Excavations, return to Red Rocket, unload loot, return immediately to Thicket excavations and find that all weapons, loot, and containers have repopulated and locks relocked. Same goes for Wicked Shipping Fleet Lockup. It is likely that these are not the only locations that exhibit this bug.

Personal Note: This bug breaks immersion for me so strongly that I have not played the game in nearly a year. Every couple of months I power up FO4 to see if a patch took care of it, only to be disappointed. It is as though these locations have never been visited (though the enemies do stay dead). I am pretty sure the issue did not exist originally and that an official patch created the bug, but I cannot say for certain. I LOVED my time with the game prior to the bug.

Same here. In my games beside locations, OP mentioned it also happens with Concord until you enter museum for the 1st time. Therefore, you can loot all exterior houses, safes, fringes (including one with nuka-quantum) and so on indefinitely until you progress with museum quest. In addition, same crap happens near Red Rocket if you do not clear cave - few mushrooms, items lying on the ground near entrance and most importantly steamer trunk under white water tower nearby respawning almost instantly.

I’m new to fo4 and very early in the game but most starting locations have this bug so I think there is many more like this.

This also happens at the Rotten Landfill and Wildwood Cemetary.
