Why did selinux reset on system upgrade?

I recently upgraded my F22 to F23 using the dnf upgrade tool - all went well except for selinux. I had previously set a number of selinux options (boolean values) to allow my server configuration to operate. After upgrading these had to be set again, which was inconvenient to say the least.

My question is, is this supposed to happen and if so why? I'm not looking for answers that tell me to disable selinux, I'm just trying to get to the root of the (potential) problem.

I'm not really clear on how selinux stores it's configuration, but I did a search for .rpmsave files to see whether the configuration had been somehow replaced and found nothing in relation to selinux.

Thanks
