Terrain material is rendered incorrectly when changing a scene and instancing a Terrain using Addressables in Play Mode

Package: Addressables


How to reproduce:
1. Open the ““ project
2. Open the “SampleScene”
3. Open the Addressables Groups window
4. Build the Addressable group using the “Default Build Script” option
5. Select the “Use Existing Build“ for “Play Mode Script“
6. Enter the Play Mode
7. Click on “Load Scene“ in the Game view
8. Observe the Game view window

Expected results: Material for the Terrain is rendered correctly
Actual results: Material for the Terrain is rendered incorrectly (more shiny) than it is supposed to be

Reproducible in: 1.21.20 (2021.3.36f1, 2022.3.21f1, 2023.2.15f1), 2.0.8 (6000.0.0b11)
Could not reproduce in: 2.0.8 (2023.2.15f1) (System.Exception console errors preventing from Loading a Scene)

Reproduced on: Windows 11 Pro (23H2)
Not reproduced on: No other environment tested

- If in the Inspector in the Play Mode the “Draw Instanced“ field is checked, the mesh will not be rendered at all
- There are a couple of workarounds:
- Reasign the Terrain Material in the Inspector in Play Mode after loading the scene
- Select the ”Use Asset Database“ for “Play Mode Script“ in the Adressables Groups window
