[PD] saving table contents confusion

Dear list,

Reading from its help patch I understand that [table] actually creates
a graphical array inside a subpatch. The table help patch canvas-help.pd
says that the table data and properties are not stored with the patch
(despite a flag being available in the properties menu). This has
confused me quite a bit, trying to find the reason why data is not
stored despite the checkbox being ticked. Any chance this could be
improved in the GUI somehow?

When I create a graphical array from the put menu and place it into a
manually created subpatch I can save its contents. Now I wonder why this
behavior is different?

Thanks for all explanations!
