Tricky setting I came across recently.

If you change the sun position for a camera view in the view settings, it looks fine in the saved view. But when you place that saved view onto a layout, the sun setting defaults to the camera sun setting.

Did you redefine the saved view? (In the View Settings)

Did you modify the camera to current view settings? (Right click camera in Project Map)

Yes to both. That made the saved view correct, but when that saved view is placed on a layout it takes the sun location from the camera, not the view setting.

This is a known bug in ARCHICAD 22. We are working on a solution and want to release a fix for this in an update. You will find it as fix #256843 in the update release note when it is fixed.

I know it is not ideal, but a way to work this around is to save independent 3D perspective views instead of saving multiple views of a single camera (or duplicate the camera for each different view).
