My question is: is there any good reason to use a file in production with

any reason why they would have built this file with LVLCHK(*NO).



Not in my book - no.

As your situation aptly demonstrates, when you run with LVLCHK *NO it is like driving the wrong way on the Interstate - it is not a question of IF you have a crash - it is a question of WHEN.

And I don't care how good the control systems are - they are never good enough to make the risk worthwhile.
