Contact information on Constituent record is not properly updated when they are a Contact for an Organization

When using an individual constituent as a Contact for an Organization and using the same phone number and email address for the Organization Contact as that on the constituent's record, you may notice the constituent's phone number and email address are not properly updated to reflect the "Do not contact" criteria selected on the Organization Contact.
We are currently evaluating this issue for a fix in a future service pack. 

Until a fix is issued, one can edit the Organization Contact phone number and email address and recheck the "Do not contact" checkboxes and click Save. The phone number and email address on the Constituent record will properly update to include the "Do not contact" flags.
