Just had another look. So, my original statement that other gtk-3 apps
show "Recent" for Save is probably wrong (also checked eog and evince).
Not sure what made me believe that. Only gtk-2 apps do (e.g. gimp,
inkscape, chromium, libreoffice, all checked under Ubuntu 16.04).

Nevertheless, it's an inconsistency of the user experience.

  Bad user experience: Missing "recent documents" in save dialogs

Status in evolution package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  Ubuntu 16.04, evolution-

  Open an email with an attachment, and click on the button to save the
  attachment. A file chooser dialog appears. The bug is that it is not
  possible to select the recently used documents.

  Note that other gtk-3 file dialogs show the recently used documents
  even in save dialogs. Evolution-3.18 seemed to have disabled this
  feature although it is super-practical when you want to save many
  files (e.g. email attachments) to the same directory. Earlier versions
  of evolution supported this.
