To be clear: this problem only occurs when adding exported file back to catalog, in a different folder (e.g. one that's not in view).

LR always sets its current folder to the folder images are being imported into.

I typically Export to a subfolder of the master image folder so the photos are easy enough to find without putting them into LR.

At the end of an Export, I am usually ready to do something to the photos outside of LR, so instead of re-importing them into the catalog, I set the Post Processing action to be Open in Explorer/Finder.

Then this isn't a problem for you, but it *is* a BIG problem for anybody exporting to another "distant" folder who doesn't want their workflow interrupted by a folder scroll. I can see how this would be unnerving, to say the least.
