We're working in Revit 2016.  in a stacked wall with a CMU wainscot at the bottom and lap siding above the doors either read the face of the CMU and then the jamb continues up the wall with a 4 1/2" gap between the frame and the lap siding (the rightmost highlighted door) .  We also have instances were a door cuts the wall framing but the CMU extends past the opening (the center highlighted door), requiring that we manually cut the CMU at the door opening. The leftmost highlighted opening is were a door was removed, but the manual cut in the masonry remaned. 

Both parts of the stacked wall have identical boundary layers at the outside of the plywood sheathing and the inside of the wall studs.  Any idea how to resolve or correct this stragne malfunction?

Stacked walls are not one wall, they are a "stack" of individual walls.   When you pace a door in a stacked wall, ith is placed in the wall at the point you pick in the stack.  That may be the wall at floor level or some other wall in the stack.   The door cuts only that wall initially.  If it needs to cut other walls in the stack, from an appropriate view, join the door with the other wall segments.   It will cut them.


As far as your trim problem, that is your design issue, not a Revit problem.  Revit will not automatically break and step back the trim for the facade step-backs.  And would you really build it that way?   Really? 


In most instances where we have masonry below that projects from the wall above, we would add a void cut to cut that masonry and have the wall hosted so the trim is correct on the stepped back area and extends down within the masonry wall area.  The trim would butt the masonry, not be over it.


Don't expect Revit to 'fix' all of these design issues.   You have the tools.

Please see the attached PDF file.

If the door family created correctly, it will cut the stacked wall.

The first door was inserted in the stacked wall; after I break it up, then inserted the second door. They all cut the walls.

The trim is a different story. You can follow WWHub's way.

Or create a door family with the trim pieces which can cut the wall/walls. It depends on the relation between the "Opening cut" and the trim pieces.
