We do not use address book replicas - but advise our users to synchronize their address books from within Lotus Notes, and use the iNotes template for mail files. By doing this, it places the contacts in a hidden view ($Contacts) directly within the mail file. When the users do this action (synchronize), the BES will update the PIM Sync Server location and relative path to wherever the user's mail file is (since the contacts are contained within it).
maybe this info will help you figure out why your address book replica location keeps getting overwritten within PIM Sync. Since we don't use replicas, I'm not sure what else may be involved there.
there is also a registry setting that will automatically populate this data, "AllowUnsynchedINotes". If you have that registry key, it may be auto-populating the location of the user's mail file for contacts.
