As title says. Checking/unchecking Convert to sRGB checkbox has no effect. A CMYK is always converted to RGB. Issue exists with an export dialog and with a quick export (adjusted export preferences accordingly)

Yes, because PNG does not support CMYK, only Grayscale and RGB.
The sRGB conversion is for the colorspace, not the mode.
