I am running BOINC 7.16.1 on an Ubuntu 18.04 machine (i7-8700 with 12 cores) and have set CMS as my only project on a given location with "zero resource share".
However, over the course of three hours, I have now picked up nine CMS work units, even though I am still running WCG on all cores, and won't finish for a few hours.

Is this a bug in LHC or BOINC?
Or an undocumented feature?

See for example this thread. Resource share is not an instantaneous setting, and it has its foibles.

OK, that explains it more or less. I have seen that happen in a limited way before - whenever I attach to Rosetta for the first time with zero resource share, it will send a single work unit immediately, but I had never seen it operate over several hours before. It will straighten itself out shortly it seems.

You have a good memory.
