I have followed several tutorials about installing XMP presets in Lightroom Classic.  In all examples that I've seen, after imported, the presets show up in a properly labeled folder under the regular 'Presets' folder.  However, in my case, they always end up as a stray mess (no folder) under 'User Presets'.    Why is it not behaving as I see in the tutorials?

Preset sorting is now based on the Cluster setting inside the preset rather than the folder it physically exists inside. So unless the preset has this set, it will end up in User Presets. And now that I've posted this, maybe it'll be documented somewhere.
