Follow-up Comment #2, bug #60538 (project make):

Sounds like this discussion would be better on the bug-make@gnu.org or
help-make@gnu.org mailing lists, at least until we determine there's a real

The only way this can happen that I know of (barring bugs) is by adding the
*-e* make command line option which causes environment variables to override
make variables.

Can you print the $(MAKEFLAGS) variable in your makefile to see if it's set? 
Are you modifying MAKEFLAGS anywhere in your setup, that might be done
incorrectly so make thinks you want to set the -e option?
