As Edmund already stated, this isn't an issue with thematic consistency: the second Expendables score did a good job of offering thematic consistency without feeling like a rehash. The problem is that so much of the third score is just verbatim copy/paste of music from the first and second scores.

This is something I've not heard before, but it would explain a lot about the Expendables 3 score if it was mostly arrangers adapting pieces of the prior scores, and Tyler's actual contribution was limited. This is also what was done with the second and third Superman scores. May I ask what your source is on this? It seems to make sense.
