Custom Field - Checkbox - Pardot & Salesforce Conflict

Hello All, We have a custom field on a lead and a contact that is a checkbox. This checkbox is updated by Pardot. Pardot is checking the box and salesforce is unchecking the box. We have reviewed all Triggers, Workflows and Validation rules, none of them are tied to these custom fields. Have you see anything like this happen before with Pardot or checkbox fields?
Thank you!
