Short description of error
If you click on a preset menu entry to change e.g. the sampling settings, nothing happens. The values only update when you close the popup. So while you are clicking the different menu entries you think nothing happens and the presets are broken.

Exact steps for others to reproduce the error
Open startup file, change Render Engine to Cycles.
Click on the presets icon and choose one of the menu entries. Nothing seems to happen when you click. Maybe not technically a bug, but still feels super buggy ;)

Note that in some scene, even closing the popup doesn't help. In the classroom scene, you have to click on the scene name and then validate to get the presets to apply.

Most presets work (now) a few don't.

Failing :-
Cycles sampling
Cycles Light paths
Fluid viscosity

Camera Safe areas - This refreshes the first time a preset is selected and then fails.

Maybe a little off topic, the hair dynamics panel has presets, the icon does not show until you enable hair dynamics, after that it stays visible while enabling/disabling.
