Methinks you're still a bit confused about this.
Custom. Properties. Are. Persistent.

The "problem" with standalone apps is that they can't be modified
while they're running. So any changes you make in memory aren't (and
can't) be saved to the running application. This is an operating
system thing, not a rev thing. There are various ways to work around
this: preferences files, splash screen apps, separate stack files,
etc.
