The "Include Debug Files" option being disabled is not taken into account for "For Distribution" builds. The debug files are included no matter what this is set to.

Regression?: Yes
This did not occur in 4.19

Steps to Reproduce
  1. Create a project
  2. In Project Settings > Packaging, enable For Distribution and ensure that Include Debug Files is disabled
  3. Package the project for Windows 64-bit
  4. Navigate to the packaged project's directory
    Result: Debug files are included, this can be seen by the DebugFiles manifest and the PDB file in the Engine/Binaries/Win64 folder
    Expected: No debug files are present
