1. Create a group of several layers of any kind

2. Add a mask layer to the group

3. Ungroup the layers

4. The mask layer has been deleted

This only happens to mask layers subsequently added to existing groups. Mask layers that exist before creating the group are not being removed when ungrouping the layers.

The mask was on the Group not on a specific layer included in the Group. So when you delete the Group it's mask is also deleted. Expecting the mask to remain is like adding a mask to a pixel, image or curves layer, then deleting the pixel, image or curves layer and expect the mask for that layer to stay.

Fair enough, but when I ungroup a layer group it is rather a change in structure than a deletion. I can see that techically theĀ  group is deleted, but I don't tell Photo to literally delete anything.

Well the structure part "Group" is removed, ie; deleted isn't it? What I'm saying is the Layer called Group is removed, and that is what the mask is tied to.
