According to the manual every time you switch off the engine and withdraw the ignition key the driving mode returns to normal.
My 2018 Xcellence Lux 1.0 DSG always returns mode to normal after switching off.

My FR does something else.
@1st start of the day always profile normal.
After choosing ECO or SPORT , and you stop (@ macDonalds or somewhere else) and you start up again after a short break, the profile is still the same but the gearbox is back in Normal mode.

Went out yesterday early evening to the local supermarket and deliberately set to Sport, still in Sport on the way home. Just been out now and still in Sport ours won't change until we deliberately change it.

I am beginning to think could it manual boxes stay in mode but the DSG boxes revert to normal?.

Our manual box definitely has a sport mode, normal, economy and custom are the others. The mode obviously does not effect the gear change but does affect all the other things, throttle response and so on and it only changes mode when the button is pressed and a new different mode is selected.

Yes, this is what the manual says. Why bother storing it?
