If you do not want automatic behaviour generated for a specific room, mark the room as "Manually Configured" in web admin. This will stop UpdateEntArea to create default scenarios for that room.

I am running 12.04, and the lights I have assigned to Outdoor rooms are automatically turning on/off at sunset/sunrise just as this post indicates.

Is the only solution still to remove any lights I don't want this behavior for from Outside rooms?

I don't even see an advanced section in my timed events.

Advanced->Configuration->Events seems to take me to an Advanced Events section but I do not see any existing events in there...

Has the ability to even see these automatically generated scenarios been removed?

What if suggest is to create a room called 'Garden' (or whatever you choose) using a room type other than 'outside area'. Now your outside lights will not get the dawn/dusk auto generated scenario. You could add you own manually created dawn/dusk scenario there though that works as you would like.

All the best
