Lightroom Classic: Saving Spelling and Grammar Settings

Every time I open Lightroom Classic CC (Mac OS11.2.1) to work on a shoot I have to set the Spelling and Grammar settings in the Library's Metadata panel.  Is there a hidden preference somewhere that will allow me to set those options to Check Spelling While Typing and uncheck the Correct Spelling Automatically and save them for next time without have to reset them again?  I've been using LR and LRc since beta and have never found a way to save those settings.

I don't know of any built in LR spell checker, could this be from the OS? 

I tried this on Big Sur, just typed "asdgds" and while I do see a suggestion for a spelling correction for Safari, which I'm using, I don't see it in LR. 

Check the System Prefs>Keyboard>Text. Maybe turn off all check boxes IF one is on?

In the Metadata panel of the Library, Control-clicking on an active field will bring up a submenu with spellcheck options.  I always thought that was a Lightroom feature - is that actually an OS feature?  Can that be saved as a preference somewhere??

Looks like the OS to me, when I futz with a word listed using Control Click, I see this (and an option to go to Text in System Preferences):

This is the submenu I'm referring to:

This is the submenu I'm referring to:

Exactly what I see and, if you drill down deeper, you'll see the options I provided above, that lands you into the System Preferences>Text. 

Seems to be the OS. 

I wonder if Windows users see anything similar. Again, AFAIK, there is no LR specific spell checker.

I agree those settings should be "sticky" between Lightroom sessions.
