    Resolution Note:

    This is by design and undocumented.

    Unity serializes all serializable private fields when reloading assemblies to make it easier to make hot reloading of code in play mode work. E.g. less fields have to be updated. Private fields are not serialized in other serialization cases, such as when loading scenes.
