I read the Salesforce documents around the data that gets copied when a sandbox is refreshed, but still wanted to make sure my understanding is correct on the list of items that are copied over when a sandbox is refreshed or created.

Can you please help understand the behaviour.

enter image description here


Same as Prod.

All ID values are copied verbatim, including user ID values, field ID values, object ID values, record ID values, record type ID values, and so on. The only exception to this rule is the Organization ID is changed to allow Salesforce to uniquely identify the org you're logging in to.

A sandbox is literally a copy of production (except obviously record data for partial/developer/developer pro sandboxes).

    However, conversely, when you deploy a new component to a target environment that does not include that component, the ID will not match. – Charles T Feb 7 '18 at 18:59
