How is this possible? The only way we would get the marker is if we
either (a) listed the mappings by project_id, using
INSTANCE_MAPPING_MARKER as the query value, or (b) listed all the
mappings and somehow returned those to the user.

I don't think (a) is a thing, and I'm not seeing how (b) could be
either. If you know of a place, please write a functional test for it
and we can get it resolves. In my proposed patch, I added a filter to
ensure that this doesn't show up in the get_by_cell_id() query, but
again, I'm not sure how this would ever be exposed to a user.
