Visibility attributes not updated when ingest.reingest.force_on_same_marc flag is enabled

Bug Description

EG 3.0+

If the ingest.reingest.force_on_same_marc flag is enabled, visibility attributes are not updated like you might expect when a record is modified. In particular, this includes additions or modifications to located URIs: if you add a new record with a located URI scoped to SYS1, for example, the record will not appear in SYS1 search results.

The reason is that the asset.cache_copy_visibility db function can't update bre.vis_attr_vector in this scenario without causing a trigger loop. This is a known issue, and there is a warning about it in the upgrade notes:

But the warning is easy to miss. Since this behavior is unexpected and a few EG admins have run afoul of it, I am opening a bug report.

Ideally, we'd find a way to update bib vis attrs without getting stuck in a loop. At a minimum, increased awareness of the current behavior (e.g. by having an open bug report to point to) is helpful.

Ran into this issue within the last week. Thanks for filing this, Jeff. I'd love to see this fixed somehow, as the current outcome is surprising.

See also bug #1730758 for history of this behavior.
