1)Create 2 artboards each having separate layer(s).
2)Create a new layer which overlaps these 2 artboards.
3)Save the file.
4)Make changes to the layer created in step 2.
5)Click on revert.

Check Layers window. After revert, layer of step 2 gets placed inside one of the artboards.

Artboards are greedy and try to suck in any layers that overlap them but are outside of their folder. You can prevent this with a button in the layer panel "lock" area... There's a button that looks like a little artboard called "Prevent auto-nesting in artboards".

If you check that box when you have an artboard layer selected, it prevents that artboard from auto-nesting. If you check it for a layer or layer-group, it prevents all artboards from grabbing that particular layer.

Yes he/she should definitely use "Prevent auto-nesting in artboards" feature.

But I think revert command should revert it back to the original state. In fact if I close the document immediately after revert command and reopen it then layers are not inside the artboard.

Just tried "Prevent auto-nesting in artboards" option. Still layer gets nested/placed inside one of the artboards when Revert button is clicked.
