Short description of error
Opening Blender 2.79 files in Blender 2.8, does not respect dupli-group display type.

Exact steps for others to reproduce the error

  1. Open attached blend file in blender 2.79
  2. notice how the dupli-group is in bounds mode
  3. open the same file in blender 2.8
  4. notice how the dupli-collection is no longer in bounds mode.

This causes problems on large production scenes, especially with the viewport slowdown (T58188)

@Brecht Van Lommel (brecht) not sure whether this new behavior is expected, or if this slipped in during the whole group-to-collection complicated code work?
