This is not what I am seeing here. I just tested it. If I choose a particular DC, it stays there until I change it again. I just chose a DC that does not have the FSMO role. Upon reopening the applet, it is still there. The only way to change it is to choose some other option. I tested on Windows 10 21H2.
