I think i did hit this problems 2 years ago already.
Sad to see that bug still exist.
If you edit object, the arrows inworld are showing not "World Space Adjustment" While properties expect the input in "World Space Adjustment"
Here's the problem, Object show you need to move the X direction.
So you change the X direction in properties. And the building is going in a complete different direction. Yes you can fix it bij enable "World Space Adjustment" But that's not logic and stupid.
What sansar need todo and what already 2 years ago must have been default , make sure "World Space Adjustment" is enabled by default. SO the object inworld is showing and reacting the same as the object properties.
