`C-h f dired-hide-details TAB' shows you these variables:


You might start with the last two, checking in your init
file, `custom-file', or other code you might load.

You can also put (debug-on-entry 'dired-hide-details-mode)
in your init file, to find out what code is calling it.
In the debugger, look at how it gets called, then use `c'
to skip debugging.  Use `M-x cancel-debug-on-entry RET'
to cancel such debugger entry.

But it's probably easier to just grep for `dired-hide-details'
in directories of customization and 3rd-party code you load.
