(Layer > First Layer Width %) First layer width is set to 150%.
(Advanced > Allowed Perimeter Overlap) Allowed perimeter overlap is set to 100%.

The combination of these two settings is allowing for the first layer to be printed as 4 separate single extrusions rather than overlapped perimeters. Set first layer width % to 100% and the first layer will mirror the following layers.
