// Using acf/init
add_action('acf/init', 'my_acfe_modules');
function my_acfe_modules(){

    // Disable Field Group UI
    acf_update_setting('acfe/modules/field_group_ui', false);
    
}

// Or using acfe/init
add_action('acfe/init', 'my_acfe_modules');
function my_acfe_modules(){
    
    // Disable Field Group UI
    acfe_update_setting('modules/field_group_ui', false);
    
}
