Awaiting PTC to identify my issue and thought I would post to community for anyone experiencing same issue.
Creo Elements/Pro 5.0.M180
Model Check turned on for Save.
Model Check GateKeeper configured but not turned on.
For all sense and purpose to make this issue repeatable, all settings are OOTB.
1. Add to Local Workspace an assembly and open in Creo Elements/Pro>Save - message states "not saved as model not changed, expected results
2. Do another Save - Conflict window appears asking for you to set check out, read only or continue on all the components (nothing was modified).
I have looked at and tested several configurations that affect save operations to no avail. When I disable MC I do not get behavior. Anyone with MC running have this issue?
Aside from this why the Save is even available to an object that was never changed in my opinion is not good practice.

Solution found by PTC
In my config_init.mcc file I had removed the below section
# Duplicate models - Automatically add dup model info to text file
# Y - always add model info
# N - Never add model info
# D - add model info but Don't overwrite existing info
# A - always Ask the user whether to add AND whether to overwrite
ADD_DUP_INFO_AUTO YNDA N N N N
Evidentally this is needed in order to use the DUPLICATE_MODELS in the defaults_check.mch file (set to "N").
This setting or lack of in the config_init.mcc was requiring the dependant compenents to be modified.
