Staff "scale" reverts to 100% if "advanced style properties" are also changed.
I found a bug in the "Staff Properties". Basically, the staff "scale" reverts to 100% if "advanced style properties" are also changed, at the same time.
Steps to reproduce bug:
1 - Open any score and control click on any staff to open the popup window, then from the menu select "Staff/Part Properties"
2 - in that new window, under "Staff Properties" change the scale to anything but 100% - let's say 120%
3 - now, click on "advanced style properties" and in that new window make a change
4 - click OK to close the "advanced style properties" window (at this point note that the scale percentage is still 120% as you've done in step 3.
5 - click OK to close the "Staff/Part Properties" window
Now you are back in the score, but you can see that the scale did not change. So, now repeat step 1 and you will see that the scale jumped back to 100%.
You can only change the scale if you don't also try to change any of the "advanced style properties" at the same time.
Hope this helps.
It's confusing, "scale" is not even a property of
Scale is an option in staff/part properties for the user.

But I'm surprised that even though I cannot find this
scalevariable, the functionality still gives me the desired result most of the time.
Is it surviving save and reopen?

Yes. It is only bugged under the case the OP said.
I think the property you are looking for is "mag"
