Nothing about this option is remembered in the list configuration.

I think you are correct about the cause, but this will occur if the
current setting of OLD_STYLE_PREFIXING is No or if the prefix contains
a %d replacement. I.e. any %d replacement in subject_prefix will
override OLD_STYLE_PREFIXING = Yes just like it says in Defaults.py.
I'll look at fixing this for 2.1.11. Thanks for the report.
