If I have an embedded JPG as a Smartobject in Photoshop – which by the way happens all the time when I use Adobe Stock Assets – it is really annoying to make changes or do retouching based on additional layers because you can‘t save it back. And to save it separately and then replace it manually is such a waste of time. It would be great if Photoshop could auto-convert the file type to psd, whenever I make changes to the original Smartobject.

Personally that is a low priority for me but I see the benefit of the requested feature and I recall encountering a few threads started by people who were confused about why they couldn’t save a jpg-Smart Object after they had added Layers. 
So, yeah, +1

Thanks for your vote! It wasn't a big deal for me either until I started to use Adobe Stock...

I do not use adobe stock for this reason and also there have been quite a bit of suggestive content that goes against my religious beliefs in adobe stock it has become to political centered or PC if you ask me.
I use freepik and various free sites that offer free stock photos completely free and with commercial use.

You might still add your vote if you think the Request might have benefit for you even with images from other sources. 

Out of curiosity: What image content are you offered on Adobe Stock that annoys (or maybe even insults) you? Is this about »salacious« imagery or same-sex-couples or something else? 
I am not arguing against your choice to take your business elsewhere, just curious.

And no need to answer if you don’t feel like it.
