Hi there Akash,
thanks for the hint. Indeed, I did, but it does not automatically become the default setting. I can choose the stored setting - but it isn't default which is what I would require. Thanks for your help though!

It will only become the Default setting for the Import Preset you will make
Everyone have different requirements while importing so "Copy as DNG" cannot be set as default.
Import Preset is the only way you could let Lightroom remember these settings
However you could Request for a Feature here Photoshop Family Customer Community
You have correctly identified the problem.
