CR/LrC/LrD: Sony files have a yellow/green tint

I updated to Lightroom 10.3 (from LR9.4), and when I did so the colors in my images changed and have taken on a green/yellow cast. The image on the left was exported from LR10 and the image on the right from LR9. Absolutely nothing changed in any of the settings. All of the images in my LR10 catalog now have a similar green/yellow tint. Has anyone experienced this and is there something I can do to fix it?

I have tried to color correct based on the photo when I have it opened, but then the preview image will become much cooler, and if I undo the action, the preview image will update to match the yellow tint, but if I unselect and reselect the image, the preview will again show my original, correct color grade but the open image will have the yellow tint.

Exported from a raw?

Can you upload one? 

Also a screen capture of both Export dialogs would be useful. After export, viewed in what application?

I've updated from 10.2 to 10.3 and now my images are all gaining a Yellow/Green cast...as if the white balance slider has been moved. From what I could tell it only seemed to affect my Sony Files, not Fuji but I didn't overlay test for long as I had work to do. Downgraded back to 10.2 and everything was fine again...after generating new preview for the images 10.3 had changed. 

I'm running a M1 Macbook air with 16GB ram and the files are from a Sony a7iii

As a test. Do you see the same color shift in Adobe Camera Raw as you are seeing in Lightroom Classic?

Hi all, I posted this issue on community and contacted tech support a couple of times, but no luck. The last support agent told me to give this place a try. 

After updating Lr Classic to 10.3 on my M1 Mac, I immediately noticed the shift in white balance. Photos taken by A7iii became noticeably greener. While the tint and color temperature values were still the same, what was as shot values in 10.2 (in grey) became adjusted values in 10.3 (in white) without me changing anything.

In ver. 10.2, the exported tiff file looks the same as the edited raw file. (lens: FE 85 f1.8)
But, in ver. 10.3, they are different, even though the white balance values haven't been changed. 
In another example, the as shot values of the one particular photo are 5650K and +6 in ver. 10.2, but become 5350K and +12 in ver. 10.3. It's worth mentioning, this photo looks indistinguishable in ver. 10.2 and 10.3 at their respected as shot white balance. 
I'm running into the same issue on AMD-based PC as well, so it's not just Mac. Older photos taken by Pentax don't seem to be affected, only the ones by A7iii, regardless of the lens and lighting (fluorescent light seems to be least affected).

I wonder if there's going to be a 10.3.1 release only for this issue or we'll have to wait another update cycle that fixes this but breaks something else from critical functionality (yes, broken grain rendering in develop, I'm looking at you) and eternal waiting cycle for somewhat bug-free version will continue...

Also want to point out that once photos were sent to PS from Lr Classic 10.2, their white balance was changed too, regardless of PS's version. Same as updating to Lr 10.3.

I've got the same problem with Sony AR7iii files shifting to green/yellow in the Develop module with version 10.3. I reverted back to 10.2 and everything is back to normal. I'll be staying with 10.2 until this is resolved. I'm running LR on Windows 10 Pro ver 20H2 with build #19042.1149. 16GB DDR4 RAM. Intel Core i7 7700K CPU. EVGA Nvidia GTX 1080 FTW2 GPU. The color cast remains whether or not I disable GPU processing in preferences.
