Default Documentation Folder updates

I have iDrive backing up my entire "Documents" folder on my Mac (overnight).
I have Pro Tools using all the default MacOS locations for everything.
Everytime I start Pro Tools, it refreshes 7 documents in the Documents/Pro Tools/Documentation folder.
This means that every time I open Pro Tools I end up with another backup of those 7 documents.
I don't want to exclude any folders from my main Documents folder backup, because then any new folders added to Documents won't get backed up. It needs to always backup new files and changed files, which is what it currently does.
So I have two questions. Why does PT refresh these documents every time it runs, and is there any way to stop it from doing so?
