It's true in all cases.  But the easy way around it is as follows:

1. Make TWO fields.  Call them A and B.  At start(), make them hold the same exact stuff.

2. Agents read field A to get their sensor information, but they make changes to field B.

3. A special agent, scheduled repeating, but at a later ordering (say ordering = 2), copies field B to field A, overwriting field A's contents.

Note that if your agents move around, they'll need to make sure that they don't overwrite each other in field B.
