Summary
Using a reference content block and pulling in a layout content block on a CloudPage (Content Builder Landing Page) exposes slot/block code on a published page

Repro
1) In Content Builder, create Create > Content Blocks and select Layout.
2) Choose a content layout style, e.g. Two Column and press Select.
3) Add content to the Layout, e.g. drag a Text block and a button block and change the text and button name for respective blocks
4) Save and title the Layout block.
5) In Web Studio > CloudPages, create a Landing Page and set the Editor to Content Builder.
6) Drag a Reference Content block to the Landing Page and select the Layout content block created in step 4.
7) Publish the page and navigate to the published page

Actual result:
Additional code (slot and block details) is visible around the content in each block.

Workaround
1) Use a regular layout block and drop reference content block(s) on it - will work with all previously saved blocks except Layout block

2) Do not use reference content block and instead drop the previously saved blocks directly on to the page - works with all blocks including reference content block.
