I have an issue with the Compatibility setting under File Settings in the export dialog. Once set and saved to a profile, the next time the export dialog is used, the setting is reset to the latest.

Steps to reproduce:
1. Choose File->Export
2. Under File Settings, choose Image Format: DNG
3. Under Compatibility, choose anything other than the latest (currently 11.2 or later)
4. Add the settings as a new profile, or update an existing profile.
5. Close the dialog.
6. Choose File->Export again.
7. Select the profile you saved, and check the Compatibility setting. It resets to the latest.

Lightroom Classic 9.1 on MacOS 10.13.6

I assume this is as designed, so you don't have to update your presets when a new version is introduced.

Kind of makes sense of you choosed the latest to start with. However if you saved an older specific version you need to support, this should be preserved, or there should be an indication that this field isn't possible to store in a profile.
