No add-ons that extend/change ES.

At /admin.php?elasticsearch/ my Optimize Mappings section is always showing. I click the button, and get 'Changes Saved', but the section still remains.

With Elastic Search 5.x, you will often need to delete the index (or delete all content attached to a mapping) to apply optimize mapping changes.
