Hi Shri,

The ViewFormPagesLockDown feature will be enabled when we enable the SharePoint Server Publishing Infrastructure.

I recommend to enable the SharePoint Server Publishing Infrastructure feature by going to Site Settings of the root site > Site collection features > activate SharePoint Server Publishing Infrastructure and then create the subsite with the custom template to see if the issue still occurs.

In the meanwhile, you can post your question to the forum for Office 365:

More experts will assist you, then you will get more information relation to SharePoint Online.
