Possible bug in New Blog Templates update

I checked recent threads and haven't seen this mentioned yet. I'm not sure if this is a bug or intended feature, but I noticed with the latest update to New Blog Templates in the last couple of days that non-listed values are no longer copied.

Previously, the 'extra' info (i.e. doesn't fall under a label on site templates like Users, Pages, or a wp_ID table) was still copied sometimes. Now in the recent update this info is no longer automatically copied to the new site.

As an example, I have a plugin that allows featured images to be set externally. The URL and settings used to be copied to a new site automatically. In the new update they aren't.

Is this intended? Thanks.
