Yes, the reverted file/folder is created from scratch. So it doesn't
know about changed permissions.
If you want to keep the permissions, you have to deactivate the setting
"Use recycle bin when reverting" in Settings dialog->General->Dialogs 1.

That feature first moves all files/folders to the recycle bin (i.e.,
deleting them) and then reverts them. That way you can recover reverted
items from the recycle bin. But of course, that leads to changed
permissions getting lost.
