Fixed issues for Splunk Add-on Builder

This documentation applies to the following versions of Splunk® Add-on Builder: 2.2.0


I've packaged a props.conf which contained several parameters including KV_MODE = none with the Splunk Add-on Builder and when downloading the spl package, I am finding the following parameter removed from the props.conf.
KV_MODE = none

Below is the actual props.conf if you wish to verify the issue.
KV_MODE = none
LINE_BREAKER = ([\r\n]+)
TIMESTAMP_FIELDS = timestamp.$date
TIME_FORMAT = %Y-%m-%dT%H:%M:%S.%3N
category = Structured
description = JavaScript Object Notation format. For more information, visit http://json.org/
disabled = false
