Evidently that doesn't happen regularly, or someone would have noticed by now. In other words, there's something specific to your example that's causing it. Unless you give us a reproducible example, preferably with all the irrelevant junk edited out, I don't see how we can help.

?lattice has the following note:

     Lattice plots are highly customizable via user-modifiable
     settings. However, these are completely unrelated to base graphics
     settings; in particular, changing 'par()' settings usually have no
     effect on lattice plots.
