    You need to bake out the mesh using the Save Mesh utility in the Utilities panel of the painter. Basically, right now you have the same mesh with 3 additional vertex streams, so it ends up instancing one of them. The Save Mesh utility will bake the data from the additional vertex stream into a new mesh, which will instance properly. Note that once this is done they will be 3 different meshes, and won't instance as one draw call- but will be combinable for static batching systems and will not need new SetPass calls.
