LightRoom 6 does not respect "Default" preset when importing

LR6 under Win 8.1.

Prerequisites: Altered the 'Default Develop Settings' for the raw files from my camera (only modification: using a different, homemade DCP profile)

1. Import raw files from my camera, leaving all options as default
2. Confirm that imported files show as 'Saved Preset: Default Settings'
3. In the Develop module under 'Camera Calibration', check which DCP profile got applied to imported pics

Most raw photos correctly use my homemade profile as expected, BUT a few ones got assigned a different DCP profile (seemingly randomly).

Upon importing pics, the DCP profile set by the user for a camera in the 'Default Develop Settings' must be honored.

I also have this bug! Decided to convert RAW files (.NEF, .NRW, .RAF, .CR2 etc) to .DNG but after allowing a few thousand images to pass through LR6 crashed. When I tried a restart the convert to dng feature appears to close immediately (possibly indicating no raw files at all are found). I looked in folders to find numerous .NEFS still there? Also I have delete original checked and there appeared to be duplicates? Worse of all like you you Paul I have a non-default preset applied to all my converted .DNGs are now black and white?
This is a new install of LR6 so clearly there is an issue!
