When should Stacks be used for sports shoots as photos don't stay grouped between folders and Collections?

This conversation has been merged. Please reference the main conversation: Lightroom: Stacking in folders and collections should be global

I've just tried grouping similar photos together using Auto-Stacking for a sports shoot but found out stacked photos don't stay grouped when making new Collections. Is this really how it is meant to be used – group photos don't stay grouped? Is there a setting I'm not aware of that would keep the photos together even between folders and Collections?

I'm finding it hard to understand why should I use Stacks for grouping photos, if those groups disappear after putting to a Collection.

I mean, for a sports workflow I import each camera to its own folder and own folder for each date – so for a sports event that lasted three days and I used three different cameras I get nine folders, and for example last weekend 3.200 photos. I make one Collection to put all photos inside of it and group burst of photos with Auto-Stacking. But, when I make a new Collection (to sync a smaller set of photos with Lightroom mobile, to share to public or whatever) those groupings are lost.
