They’re not actually “wiped out” like you say. The problem is that categories, tags, and custom taxonomies are only registered to certain types of posts. When you switch the post type, it loses that relationship. The connection to the post ID still remains, which is why when you change it back, the data not lost.
Not really a bug; more a consequence of the way WordPress works.
Going to mark this as resolved.
