Group policy is defined at the Local level and can also be linked at the
Site >> Domain >> and OU level.
Site, Domain and OU level policies will win and take precedence
LSDOU -- good acronym to google.
What you can do is run an RSoP report using GPMC or use gpresult to see where that setting is being set from

You should probably use GPMC to manage GPOs. I believe your are looking at the local policy and there's a Domain policy in placed and therefore you cannot make the change. Are you using GPMC or you want to make change on the local policy which I don't suggest as you can use OU to force this changes to specific servers etc.

Try looking in the security logs on the machine for event 513 (system shutting down)
Event 512 is windows starting up.
