Thanks Tony, but no, it's not that (I did check that too), as I say, it resets any other adjustments across the batch, and it seems to apply the Raw preset at the time of doing it, but when relaunching Aperture, only the Raw resets have reverted to their previous state, apart from the first image in a project.
I have 2 issues with the RAW adjustment brick...
1) The Aperture default preset adjusts the noise reduction depending on the ISO of the camera. I can't create a custom preset that can do this.
2) If I create a RAW preset and set it as the camera default it will not stick when I reset all adjustments on an image. It always returns to the Aperture preset.
I've had a response from Apple on this post, so hope they'll look into this one. I've sent them some more information anyway.
On your point 1, I haven't been able to emulate the 'Auto' button in any of adjustments to store into a preset - something I'd like to be able to do though. It must be possible though, as the Apple preset 'Auto Enhance' does it.
On point 2, this is similar to what I'm getting, but have done some more testing now, and I now think this is a bug in the 'Reset All Adjustments' function.
I have noticed that if I want to, say, readjust a project full of Raw images, it makes sense to reset everything and start again, making use of the newest Raw processing. I simply use 'Select All' (command-A), and then use the 'Reprocess Masters' menu item. That works fine, and all Raws are processed using the new v3 software. Because I find V3 produces much better results using the Apple preset, I have deleted my old custom one, and set this to 'Apple - Camera Default'.
Using the 'Reset All Adjustments' menu item on the selected images did indeed reset everything to default, and removed non-default adjustments. I then found that quitting and relaunching Aperture caused only the Raw Fine Tuning settings to revert to their previous state - but not on the 'key' image in the selection (the one with the bold box around it).
But now I have found that using the 'Reset All Adjustments" in the adjustment pane also does not stick when applied to individual images. Again, this only effects the Raw Fine Tuning Settings.
I can make the Raw Fine Tuning settings stick only by using the individual 'Reset' button on the brick, which sets it to the default preset, and that does stick after a relaunch.
You can see that the preset did work at first, because when you select an image to view after the relaunch you can see it being reprocessed back to the old settings.
I did initially try using Lift & Stamp to set the Raw Fine Tuning settings, which does work except for the De-noise adjustment, which seems to work randomly.
