How about using different names for the properties in your development
branch vs the vendor-like branch?  That way you wouldn't get a conflict
when merging, and the properties from the vendor-like branch would
never overwrite the properties in the production branch.

Those properties would clutter-up the production branch, but would not
cause any problem and could be removed at your leisure in some later
