Default Media Explorer- User Columns- Not Persistent

User Columns added to Media Explorer, that are not "IXML:USER:xxxx' are not persistent.
On relaunch of Reaper the added columns are not displayed or visible in the menu to set to display.

Reaper Version 6.36 Windowsx64
Repro- 100% multiple PC installs.

-Add User Column
-BWF:OriginatorReference
Column is successfully added, rescan of data, populates column. Good
-Save Project, quit Reaper, Relaunch Reaper.
Column is not longer displayed or visible to set to display in Media Explorer Menu.

Investigation performed

The Reaper.ini does in the 'reaper_explorer' section have the data related to the previously added user columns.
That are not displayed on restart of Reaper.
All IXML:USER columns added are displayed.

Creating a database 'ReaperFilelist' when the columns are visible, does include the columns in the list, on examination of the txt. However on Restart they are not visible in Media Explorer.
Creating a new 'ReaperFileList' after restart when Media Explore fails to display the added User columns. The 'ReaperFileList' txt does not contain the previously created user columns.

Expected behavior
Any added User Column added to Media Explorer is persistent.
