Things to check:

  1. Ensure that store views are not configured as any defaults.

Website Scope

Website Showing Default Store

Store Scope - AKA: Store Group enter image description here

  1. Ensure that config.php is not using the store view



  1. Ensure that the configuration is not locked


  1. Check changelogs to see if issue was resolved in upgraded versions:


  1. Query database to see values:
 select * from store;
 select * from store_group;
 select * from store_website;


I'd be willing to bet that it is related to bugs that are resolved in 2.2.6


Try upgrading magento composer update in a test environment
