Thanks that was the problem. My settings.json file had root/admin as the owner/group and only write permissions to the owner. I couldn't figure a way to change it without enabling root access on my ReadyNAS, so I copied the stats.json file (which had the proper permisisons) and just edit it and rename it to be settings.json. After restarting Transmission, the password is now hashed.
