    I made a change to my exim.conf and then later noticed it had reverted back to its default state. So I re-applied the change, and again it was changed back some time later.

    Are the CPanel updates causing this? Some other process? If so, how can I prevent this from happening?

    Yes, it is a cpanel update causing these changes - to lock the file run &chattr +i exim.conf& from the command prompt.
