Index creation doesn't align to the index template


I have a template which follows:

PUT _template/syslog-template
  "index_patterns": ["syslog*"],
  "settings": {
    "index": {
      "number_of_shards": 3,
      "routing.allocation.require.box_type": "warm"

However, at creation, it is being allocated to the hot node and has replicas - both which are not part of the template.
Has anyone experienced something similar or seen this before? Why is it not following my template rules?

Thank you,
