I see the problem, but the code is very complicated; e.g. see
sas-indent-line in ess-sas-l.el  Did this
ever work?  I vaguely remember wanting to switch the default of
ess-sas-edit-keys-toggle to t for that very reason (and that is
what I have been using for the last 15 years ;o)  So, that is
my suggestion...

(setq ess-sas-edit-keys-toggle t)
(require 'ess-site)

Then TAB takes you to the next TAB stop and C-TAB takes you back, i.e.
manual indenting rather than automated indenting.
