    ANSWER:

    The known reason for such behavior in IOAICE is when the IOAICE being used is running on a non SMP/E Cloned environment.

    1)

    This is one restriction listed in the manual:
    INCONTROL for z/OS Installation Guide: Installing
    Part 4 - Cloning
    Chapter 13 - Cloning an IOA environment
    Limitations
    .../...
    The SECURITY activity is limited to the customization of the SECPARM member.
    .../...


    2)
    To install the security on the cloned environment you have to:

    On the source environment:
    - Install the security on the source environment using the IOAICE, customization, Security Customization
    - Create a deployment package using: IOAICE, Clone, Deploy IOA Environment, Deploy Changes 

    On the target environment:
    - Deploy the package 
    - Define the entities in your security package if this has not been done
    - Activate the security using the $$SECIOA.qname/*, $$SECCTx.qname/*
    - Restart all the monitors
