I think I got an idea on how to fix these. As result both settings.json and modSettings.json from mods will be ignored.

Well, not all should be ignored - check Launcher my latest minimod that turns on AI logging.

In this case - this issue will have to wait until Tow will implement storing settings somewhere under C:\Users\... on Win.

Because if I'll change priority of "<data>/config" directory to highest this will disallow overriding of files in this directory by mods and will break at least WoG and high-res menu.

Alternatively you can create mod that replaces <data>/config/schemas/settings.json so "AI logging enabled" will be considered as default settings.

Good news: VCMI always saves changes to global file instead of file from mod.

Bad news: All non-default settings will go to this file. So if player uninstalls AI trace mod AI logging will remain because this change is already part of settings.json. And I don't see any easy way to fix this.

I'll commit these changes soon. If you wish - you can create mod that changes schema instead.

BTW - these changes will also fix those problems with mods replacing modSettings.json file.

fixed, rev 3802

Should work as described in my last comment - can't do anything else here.
