Host operating system field switches on its own

screenshot of host field
Description of problem:
If a host is created and assigned to a host group (with operating system settings defined) the host os field will randomly switch after what seems to be some puppet runs. We have seen hosts switch from rhel 6.6 workstation to 6.6 server and 7 server to 7 workstation randomly.
It doesn't actually affect the host unless you try to rebuild the host while the OS field is set incorrectly. When the host switches it seems to clean the installation media field and partition table so those fields need to be manually assigned again. The attached picture shows what a host does after being set as 6.6 workstation and then building and running puppet. The host automatically changed to el6s (6.6 server) and the fields were cleared.
Our hosts switch workstation -> server. Looking back at
our hosts it appears that every puppet run workstation builds are switching
to server builds and losing their installation media and partition
information. Server builds are not switching to workstation anymore.
Connecting redmine issue http://projects.theforeman.org/issues/6006 from this bug
Upstream bug component is Provisioning
Moving this bug to POST for triage into Satellite 6 since the upstream issue http://projects.theforeman.org/issues/6006 has been resolved.
I am going to close this as a duplicate of bug 1155704, since they are both tied to the same upstream issue.
