Sidebar heirarchy expand/collapse view preservation, is it possible?

Is there a way to keep the sidebar hierarchy UNCHANGING regarding expanded and collapsed groups? My preference is so that if I reopen a window on launch of DT3, the sidebar view is precisely how I left it on either quitting the application or closing that window. It is not consistent in my experience. I like to have the hierarchy display in a particular way and I will manually change it as necessary, but from time to time DT3 expands and collapses the hierarchy with no intervention from me, which is very annoying and counterproductive to my workflow. I haven’t found a setting or answer so far to what may be simple oversight on my part. Please advise.

Have you disabled Preferences > General > Interface > Sidebar: Automatically expand & collapse groups?

This is how it is configured in settings.
