Up to now I was under the firm impression that any individual PDF settings are being saved with the respective document, and that they will be valid for it again as soon as that document would be re-opened later – which no longer seems to be the case. Confuses me quite a bit ...

That really sounds pretty weird to me. I’ve produced PDFs with InDesign for decades, and I was convinced all the time, that an opened document always has the settings present that were specified when that document was last saved. I am definitely baffled ...
