Exact steps for others to reproduce the error

Download the following 2 files


Open Instance_Particle.blend.
This file comes preloaded with a particle system ready to instance objects from within a collection linked from the Instance_Collection.blend file.
Go ahead and pick the "Instances" colection from the particle setting's drop down menu.


The objects in the "Use Count" are listed correctly.

Save and re-open the file. The list will be populated with a bunch of cubes only.

Enable the "Use Count" option. Now all objects will appear but the cube will remain duplicated various times.

Save and re-load. Even more cubes now!
