Authorities on "OnDemand"

I am responsible for DRP. I have done a full restore for one of our clients -- on a 620 V4R4M0. The problem that I had was with authorities on "OnDemand" on all the invoices it was restored as Public *EXCLUDE. Could you please advise as to why this happened? The restore was successfully.

I would assume that the system handled the restore as a normal object restore. When restoring objects, the system looks at the security level where you are restoring the files. The user profile of the system default owner (QDFTOWN) becomes the default owner of objects restored in the system whose owner is not known to the system. If an object already exists in the library to which it is restored, the public and private authorities of the existing object are kept. If the objects do not exist in the library, all public authorities are restored, but any private authorities must be granted again.
