Anyone else seeing random preference losses in Big Sur concurring with OS updates? With one point release, my dock preferences were reset (all of my "keep in dock" apps were missing, and all of my magnification settings, etc. were gone), and with the most recent update (not even a OS point release- I think it was just the "device support" update), I lost all my Finder preferences (whether network shares are shown on the desktop, whether the path bar is shown in windows, etc.). Really strange and annoying!
