Texture Object Parameter Being Read Even If It Is Not Used In a Material. 

Working as expected in 4.21 CL# 4753647

Found in 4.22 CL# 7053642, 4.23 Preview 2 CL# 7321677, 4.24 CL# 7329126

This is a regression

  2. Create a new material that has a Texture Object Parameter thats not connected to any property of the material
  3. Create an instance of that material

Invalid Texture sample type on instanced materials of a master material containing a Texture Object Parameter, linked up or not.
