This is expected behavior.

MIDI programs (patch changes) are part of the track or MIDI-region, they can change at any time during playback. It does not make sense for a Plugin to save them.

In Ardour MIDI tracks keep track of MIDI-patch changes.

@x42 Ok, then what is the preset supposed to save?
