Not a problem

Lightroom: Develop module: the black and white slider constantly show 15 + and Black -5

When I open up lightroom classic cc and click to develop module the
sliders for black and white show 15 + and  Black -5 they do not center
when I double click the same as I click through develop on all images. I am using creative cloud on a macbook pro Os High Sierra

Sounds like you changed the default settings. In the Develop module, go to menu 'Develop - Set Default Settings'. In the dialog that follows, click on the 'Restore Adobe Default Settings' button.

If that's not the case, are the pictures taken with the LRCC camera on your phone in the DNG format and synced down into LR Classic? A +15 Whites and -5 Blacks (and +8 Clarity) adjustment is automatically applied by Lightroom to DNG pictures taken with the LRCC camera.

Apparently that is the Adobe default for this camera! If you don't want that, then set both sliders to zero, use the same menu and this time click the other button ('Update to Current Settings'). That will change the default to your new settings, so to the zeroed sliders.

thanks but It appears that I will have to do this for each individual shot?

No, you only have to reset the defaults once. However, when the images come in from the cloud, they have already been set to the Adobe defaults. That is something you can’t avoid, but double clicking the sliders should now zero them and clicking the ‘Reset’ button should do that as well.
