Since 4.22.2, the Early Z-pass flags are being ignored, resulting in the number of draw calls to increase.

Tested in 4.21.2 (CL - 4753647), 4.22.2 (CL - 6574378), 4.23 (CL - 6925347)

Steps to Reproduce
  1. Download the project from this [Link Removed]
  2. Open project to see draw calls
  3. Look at attached screenshots for version-to-version comparison


Expected: The amount of draw calls should be about the same

Result: The number of draw calls has significantly increased
