Clip appears as DF in one version of Premiere, NDF in a slightly different version

I'm using Premiere 2020 (v14.x) on 2 different computers.


One computer, running OSX 10.13.6 and Premiere v 14.7.6 shows some drone clips that were shot at 47.95 FPS as having drop-frame timecode in the bin.  The modify Clip/Timecode panel also shows the clip as having a starting timecode that is DF, i.e. 00;00;00;00 --

When I look at the project on a different computer, running OSX 10.14.6, Premiere v 14.9.0, the clip now shows non-drop timecode in the bin (but still shows dropframe TC in the Modify Clip/Timecode panel.)  The Media Duration is also slightly different due to DF/NDF difference:

Have I got some mismatched setting between the two projects that might account for this, or is it due to a change between the versions, and if so, which version is correct?  To me, the mismatch between the Modify Clip panel and the bin display suggest the later version is buggy.


I see the same issue with most of the footage that was shot off-speed (i.e. not 23.976)


Of course, the very recent release of Premiere v.22 means I can no longer access the downloads to match 14.x versions between my 2 machines.  Thanks for that, Adobe!
