My evidence suggests that each of those downloaded "Match" transactions that matched a reconciled transaction, changed the Clr column from "R" to "c" in the pre-existing Quicken transaction.

After I accepted all the Schwab downloaded Match transactions, a bunch of previously reconciled transactions had reverted to a Cleared Status of "c" -- going back to July of 2020.

And that may now be the best way to deal with the Schwab downloaded Match transactions. [I haven't yet tested re-reconciling the Schwab accounts.]

You said, "Did you check the "Cleared Status" to be honest I did not. I just made sure that if it said Match the Register matched the Download Transaction. Note: that each of the Matched transactions were from 2019, 2020 and a few from 2021. The "New" were from the same time period but as I said before there was no way to Manually Match those transactions. Would have been nice to do.
But I did do a Reconcile of the Register after I did the "Accept" and "Delete" of the transactions.
From what I have seen I was sort of lucky to only have to this with about 223 in my Regular account and about 26 each in my IRA's.
I saw people had much more.
I am just waiting for some Month end and year of distributions to see if they are download properly.
Since I already know when some of the Month and Year End transaction will be hitting my account I will check the Schwab web site before I download any transactions.

See Chris_QPW last comment about why there are so many downloaded transactions.
