This is unfortunately the intended behavior. Assuming you do want to
save as RSS, but you want to save while editing to be sure you keep
changes, turning off the auto-save as RSS feature and doing a manual
export as RSS when you are done editing might be the best way for now.
I thought about a couple different ways to remember the RSS info, but
most of them require some compromises - eg, saving the info in bibTeX
comments creates some problems with reading bibtex, and using a new
file format would be a major change. I also considered saving it as a
preference (in the same manner that window positions and quick-search
keys are saved) but the work involved to make sure that wouldn't break
if you move the file was too much.
I do intend to have it remember these fields, or generate them
automatically, but for the initial test of the features, I tried to
just get it working.
If you use the RSS feature, would you be willing to describe how you
use it, and what other improvements you'd like to see? I am looking for
improvements to the user interface, to the data BibDesk puts in the RSS
file, and suggestions for other ways this kind of data might be used...
