The reason is the limited RAM on the device. The firmware can’t possibly keep track of all the different data storage methods of previous firmwares and convert them on update.
That’s why I’m handling it in the UI. I admit the process of using the updater to do this (grab config, flash, and upload back config formatted for the new firmware) is a good technique and something to explore.
