    Since guards remove themselves from their posts, how am I to maintain an acceptable defense score? Is there a Conqueror feature that I can disable, allowing settlers to occupy defense posts until this issue is patched?

    Defense score and control score is different. Control score affects settlers within the settlement while the defense score affects the successful defense, at minimum, of vanilla attacks.

    In my experience, if you assign them to their posts, they will stay assigned and the posts will provide defense and, if set to auto, will even upgrade while you are in the settlement and even while you are away.

    They will unassign if you leave, but they don't actually unassign until you return. This means everything is working correctly while you are not in the settlement and then only gets wrong when you return.

    So your defence score doesn't actually go down until you arrive back to the settlement. At which point, you find the guards and reassign them: this fixes things until the cycle repeats.

    It's a chore.

    The conqueror section of the holotape has something new about faction jobs??? There's a setting somewhere there that lets anyone work a guard plot. But I can't remember exactly which it is.

    Edit: Conqueror: Faction Guards in Vassals: off ???

    Of course there is always the option of spam-building turrets for defense, the ugly but effective lazy man's workaround until the guards unassigning issue is fixed (probably this friday)...

    For all your vassal defense needs:

    Drones: https://www.nexusmods.com/fallout4/mods/30665 Costs fusion cores and perk points, but completely ignores raider lunatics and eviscerates enemies. Don't use in an outpost or your dudes will never get a chance to level.

    And Mr. Law don't f-around: https://www.nexusmods.com/fallout4/mods/37730 sometimes likes to fight your raiders when they go molotov lob happy.

    Too high-tech for my current char, but great recommendations for another playthrough I have in mind.
    Thanks!
