NAT rules not updating.
if I restore the configuration from old file , translation address (Outbound NAT rules) will be the wan address of old file and FW does not update it to use current wan address.
to work around : I need to go to each rule and press save.
Note: only NAT rule restored from backup configuration file.

I can't reproduce this. If the user had selected "<interface name> address" e.g. "WAN Address" in the rules, the config.xml entries do not contain the IP address but an internal identifier like
wanip. There is no way that could have referenced a previous WAN address unless the user hardcoded the old address in the rule, in which case there is no way that the code could know it needed updated.
Look at a config history diff of when the correction was made, if the old IP address was in the old config, then the config was not using the "<interface> Address" macro entry before.
