Could anyone tell me what setting to change?

 

I keep seeing a thick outline even if my shapes have a thin / no stroke.

>>why did the stroke apply to the whole layer?

That's what that feature does. It applies appearance settings, including effects, to any on that layer. Move something to that layer and it will suddenly display the settings.
