Abdul Rahman,

this is a good, logical explanation. Still, features like that should have
been documented somewhere. Are they? People might be able to make use of
them, if only they knew the features were there.

Actually, a feature. Here is why this happens, I think:

Protel assumes, when you are placing parts, that you will want the relative 
locations of reference designators etc. to be as you used for the last part 
placed. So it puts, if I am correct, the reference designator there. When 
the previous part was different from the one you now want to place, this 
can be a very unuseful position. But Protel, at the same time, has realized 
that if you rotate the part from the previous position, you will not want 
the same reference designator position, so it restores the designator text 
to the default position. Thus if you want default, simply rotate the part. 
If you want what you used before, leave it unrotated.
