When setting the WB of a smart preview (original placed in an external HDD and disconnected), the photo turns turns very greenish.

I have been able to reproduce for Sony A7III raw files with 2 specific lenses (with a different lens it works fine):
- Sigma 50mm F1.4 DG HSM Art 018.
- Sony FE 25-105mm F4 G OSS.

1. Import Standard + Smart Previews.
2. Place original in external HDD.
3. Disconnect HDD.
4. Select photo and develop.
5. Set the WB (from menu or modify any slider).
6. It turns very greenish.
7. If the HDD is connected back, the photo turns OK.

Just completed editing a wedding that was sent to me in a catalogue with smart previews.  Asked the sender to not label any files green.  I didn't have any issues.  So I have narrowed the issue down to the use of filters and smart previews when the images are not on the same hard drive.  The green filter is obviously the main culprit and switching back from Develop to Library although as I've mentioned previously, the red filter and blue filter have given me some not as dramatic issues.  Would love to hear back from a LR rep regarding this as I am unable to color filter images to show a client.

Are you saying that if you, for example, have photos in LR on one computer, apply a filter on it, and THEN Create Smart Preview, it screws it up?

So a better way would be to:

1. Import Photos
2. Generate Smart Previews
3. Apply Filter separately on the other computer on the Smart Previews.

Is this right?

I work remotely from where the original files are located.  The catalog is sent to me via Dropbox with smart previews from a photographer for me to edit.  He has some files labeled green as they are favorites that he may have done some tweaking to already.  As soon as I start working on one of the files highlighted green, and especially if I toggle from Library to Develop or via versa, a funky dark olive green hue starts affecting that file, as well as a handful of other files - making them hard to view.  Once this happens I am unable to use LR to show images to a client as they can't see some of the images through the dark green.  I have a similar issue to a much lesser extent with the red and blue highlight filter.  I have not found a workaround other than to ask the photographer sending the files to not highlight any smart preview files with a color, esp. green.  Totally messes with our workflow.

Just want to say it’s entirely inappropriate that this bug is still present in Lightroom, especially considering the price increase in the photography software package. Is Adobe keen to just ignore this problem?

I agree. I have had this problem for over a year and it's random, so you never know when it's going to destroy a photo.
