I will have to review the code in some detail to answer. Generally, if you want to really control what happens you should use -through [get_pins path_to_instance_pins]. That happens when instances are used is a bit of a corner case even in other tools. STA is pin based and generally its best to use pins as parameters to the commands. If no get command is used then the tool will implicitly find the objects using a priority order and a search through the objects.

Ok. Thanks! I came up to this because I was trying to list violations related to each module of our multi project submission. I guess that I can use
to do that. (previously I had issues with the CPRP not being calculated in that case, but now they fixed it)
