Creating B&W profile - issue with HSL not editable

Hello, I am creating some black and white profiles in ACR and I have this issue. This is my workflow:

- I choose "Adobe Monochrome"

- I do some edits in Basic and in HSL

- then I save these edits into a new profile

 

Then, when I use such profile, HSL panel is inactive (greyd out), it can not be used. So then I can not tweak HSL more.

 

I tried to bypass this issue by this workflow:

- creating LUT table in PS (B&W layer where I can edit HSL)

- and then loading such LUT table to the new profile in ACR.

But the LUT settings does have zero effect to the new profile. It seems that "Adobe Monochrome" profile does not let the LUT table to work. The conversion is simply the same as if I did not load LUT table when creating new profile.

 

I thought this might be a feature, not a bug. But then I noticed Adobe profiles numbered 1 - 12 which (seems to me) incorporate HSL settings and still HSL panel is active and usable.

 

I know this is not a standard question but I hope that someone might help. Thank you!
