It isn't clear whether you get the message when you change one
particular para format, or any one para format. If it's one particular
para format, I'd look for paragraphs of that type that may contain an
override and remove it...

If it's all para tags, I'd suspect an issue with one or more pages,
and I'd check, in no particular order:
 * The properties of the text containers on the master pages, to make
sure that all of them do, in fact, have SideHead space turned on.
 * There aren't any stray text containers that were inadvertently
added to either the master or one body page.
 * Create a new document from your empty template and copy-and-paste
the content from the problem document into it.
