Short description of error
This is not exactly an error, is such an unexpected harmless behaviour.
When you setup a scene for mantaflow (liquid), and you change from liquid to gas the domain type, after you bring back the gas to liquid, it won't auto re-enable the liquid checkbox (if you don't check it, mantaflow won't correctly bake the information).
It's really a super small thing that is of course not priority. But for GUI consistency it would be good to fix this since when you create the domain with liquid it has automatically checked the liquid checkbox.

Exact steps for others to reproduce the error

Change domain type from liquid to gas and from gas to liquid. You will see that the checkbox won't be auto-checked.
