I would like to thank you for your responses. It has been a while since I have had to browse through the settings and I made a boneheaded move. When I was looking at the list of settings under "Build Plate Adhesion" after clicking the gear icon, I mistakenly though "Brim Only on Outside" was disabled because I didn't see a check mark beside it. When in fact that was the visibility setting I was looking at. After making it visible, it was in fact enabled so disabling it fixed everything.
So used to looking at numeric input I guess the double boolean threw me off.
