Why my package does not carry over some components to the subscriber org

Knowledge Article Number 000181122
Description You have included some components in your package, but after installing to a subscriber org, you noticed those are not carried over.
Resolution Generally speaking, when installing a package, you cannot change any existing component in the subscriber org unless they are marked as upgradable in the packaging guide.

So the following component cannot be changed in the subscriber org:

- Search layout on standard object like account or contact

- Page layout assignment on existing object in the subscriber org (Unless you create a new record type and assign the page layout.)

Profile settings are applied to existing profiles in the subscriber's organization on install or upgrade. Only permissions related to new components created as part of the install or upgrade are applied.

Please refer to packaging guide for more info:
