Additional Information

This behavior is as designed. Since users can create multiple of some server directories like for "arcgisoutput", the imported site needs to point to the exported bundle's server directories for all the services to work correctly. The import workflow was designed to be performed on an existing site using the same site's previously exported bundle in order to restore to a previous state of the site. As such, it is likely that the server directories will remain in the same path.
