They had been for me until recently.

At this point, I have it cleared, but I'm suspecting a deeper bug is behind

I had set the properties for a few fields at a time, and these survived
multiple save/quit/load cycles.

And then the properties disappeared.

I reset them individually, and now they stuck.

You also need to click out of the data area to get the data to fix with
