Defining mounting holes in the schematic

PADS 9.3. I have a design that has four mounting hole parts defined in the schematic. When I transfer to the layout, the holes do not appear as PCB decals.

 

I can place them manually in ECO mode, and glue them where I want them. The problem is when I try to update the PCB from the schematic, the mounting holes get erased.

 

This didn't happen in previous layouts. Replacing them every time I need to update things is getting old.

 

Back-annotating does not remove these parts from the schematic.

 

Any ideas?
