How do I turn Channel Output Mapping Off?

If channel mapping was on during syncing how do we turn it off? When pulling a multi-cam scene into a new sequence nested, we often get a “Channel Output Mapping” symbol by the nest which locks the clip’s audio to the track with the symbol. This becomes a problem when we try to mix multi-cam scenes with other footage. When certain nested sequences have the “Channel Output Mapping” symbol, and their audio is thus locked to a certain track, we run into a lot of problems when we move large chunks of footage around – most prominent among these is an issue of audio jumping tracks and sometimes overwriting other pieces of audio. So far it has really interrupted our workflow. Is there any reason we should leave this feature on? Is making sequences “adaptive” in audio tracks a solution (this gives every audio channel a "Channel Output Mapping" symbol and locks everything into place)? Is there a downside to making all tracks adaptive? Will this affect us when w e export OMF files for a professional mix?
