Violent Storm, from the same driver, has exactly the same issue. Uploaded snapshot

Mystic Warrios also has 4 players support and independent coin mechanism and doesn't have this issue.

These 3 games (viostorm, mystwarr and metamrph) are the only ones inside the driver that have support for 4 or 3 players and independent coin mechanism.

Here's Violent Storm manual: https://www.arcadiabay.de/manuals/store/Violent%20Storm.pdf
According to the wiring diagram, the player 3 inputs including the coin 3 input are provided by the Extention I/O as they are not covered by JAMMA inputs.

Also in the source code, : https://github.com/mamedev/mame/blob/master/src/mame/drivers/mystwarr.cpp
the coin input pots for those games are IPT_UNKNOWN.
