When I opened the new version, all the photos became noticablly greener. It seems they moved up the as-shot value by 6 or 8. For instance, one photo had an as-shot tint of +6, but it was +14 in the new version.
Uninstalled 10.3 and reinstalled 10.2, everything back to normal.
Camera is A7iii. Profile is just default Adobe Color. I didn't change anything after updating Lr Classic. The weird part is that, in ver 10.2, the as-shot tint is +6 (number is grey). But, in ver 10.3, that +6 was white, indicating it's been changed, so I double clicked it to reset the value, turning tint to +14 (grey again).
Adobe tech support claimed it was "not a known issue", but told me to "keep using 10.2 and wait for the next update." If this weren't a known issue, then why did he think it would be fixed in the next patch?
Anyway, the first screenshot was from 10.2. The as-shot tint of this photo was +6 (in grey). After I updated to 10.3, without changing anything, +6 (in white) was no longer as-shot value, and the photo was noticeably greener. Then I reset the tint, and the value jumped up to +12 (in grey).

As shot values shown in LrR Classic are not a definable number it's Adobe's Interpretation of the as shot by your camera model which is defined in the raw file. The white balance setting in the camera could be Auto, a defined number or one of selectable choices, daylight, cloudy, etc. It will always display as "as shot".
What is applied and used by your camera's firmware may not necessarily be what Adobe Camera raw / LrC actually interprets and may have slight differences.
In addition Adobe is continuously adjusting profiles, process version to create a more realistic and pleasing result. This includes the camera matching profiles for specific models.
Thank you for your reply! Whatever Adobe did there, it changed the tint of all the photos that were edited in ver. 10.2 and eariler. Certainly not a pleasing result as I now have to re-edit every single photo I want to export to match the original look. I do hope this is not intentional.
The left one if the corner of a photo in ver. 10.2, and the right one is the same location of the same photo in ver. 10.3 (without changing any settings).
