How do you set/change file overwrite properties (Windows Installer Versioning Rules vs. Never Overwrite vs. Always Overwrite) when you are using Dynamic File Linking?

I converted about a thousand files in our installers to Dynamic File Linking. Then I added five new files to the install. The new files don't overwrite existing, older versions of the files, but the pre-existing files do.

That tells me that the files that were converted to Dynamic File Linking already have a default versioning rule (Windows Installer Versioning) while the newly added files are following a different rule, which I can't figure out how to see or change.
