I am stumped. Certain fields are NOT required and yet they still show up if I add the base form to a node_edit variant in Page Manager (Node add/edit form).


And I finally found out why:

If the user who's accessing this node_edit form variant has the right to update this field even if it's not required and you didn't add it to the form, it will show up as part of the base form in Node add/edit form (Home » Administration » Structure » Pages)

Hope that helps someone else too.
