Photoshop 2021 Alpha ignored?

So I'm trying something simple but it doesn't work as it once did.

 

I make an image, and then I give that image an alpha channel. Export as EXR.

 

I import this image back into photoshop. The alpha channel is deleted on import, and the image is premulted (why?). I can't see any options to change this. 

 

I create a new alpha channel and draw a new alpha. Export and then reimport. This new alpha is ignored and deleted, and the image reverts to the first alpha I drew. 

 

This makes it impossible to work with for me. I've been trying to figure this out for hours, so any help would be great. There used to be a pop up when you exported saying alpha or transparency, but this is now gone.

Can anyone explain this, and how to stop it? 

 

Thanks

I would reset the photoshop preferences by going to Edit>Preferences>General, clicking on Reset Preferences On Quit and restarting photoshop.
