CW LMS bundle 3.0.1 with RME 4.1.1 - discovery will add devices with Device IP Address of interface that is occasionally down. I manually change device identity to use a loopback or other address, but they change back after a day or two. How can I keep the manually added ip on the devices?

Discovery should not be choosing down interfaces for the preferred management address. However, if the interface later goes down, or if the device is reporting a down interface is up (i.e. via SNMP), then that's out of Discovery's hands.

If you do not want Discovery to operate on existing devices, you can add those devices to the Discovery Exclude list.
