Grub update: why not /etc/default/grub.pacnew

sometimes after a grub update my file /etc/default/grub is modified very strange. I have two lines GRUB_GFXMODE=auto and GRUB_THEME=...manjaro...theme and my entries disappeared. My value of GRUB_TIMEOUT is not modified. Especially the value GRUB_GFXMODE=auto brings a grub sreen in a very low resultion. I am not happy with it.
Some other changes in the /etc directory create a ....pacnew file. Why is this not possible with /etc/default/grub?

When an existing config file is replaced is may be to ensure it works with the updated application. In such case the original is kept as .pacsave and it is the user's responsibility to act accordingly.

You should always keep an eye on the log - to see if you need react - most notably before your restart your system - this will keep surprises at a minimum.
