When saving an edit with VisualEditor, the "Watch page" checkbox is disabled even though the page is already on the watchlist
Closed, DuplicatePublic

Description

I just edited https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Outright_Monetary_Transactions using VisualEditor. After saving my edit, I observed that the page got removed from my watchlist and I had to re-add it. To investigate, I then made another edit and noticed that, unlike in the default editing interface, the "Diese Seite beobachten" ("watch this page") checkbox was not checked by default despite the fact that the page was already on my watchlist. This is unexpected given it works differently in the classic editing interface.
