I cant reproduce it reliably, but I twice made a new design - with a new name, produced a ship with the new name, and it had 'default' systems instead of the ones I choose. I later refit these ships successfully. I uploaded the game where this happened.
Hrm. On turn 1222 -- it looks like you triggered the "cheat" option. One side-effect of cheating is that all your designs are reset to auto-designed configs. That's probably confusing and unnecessary, but, then, the "cheat" button isn't really a well-supported feature
More generally though, one quirk of the ship design/production system, particularly relative to MOO2 -- is that if you edit a design, but don't change the name, any ships under construction using that design name will change their loadouts to the new spec. That's an intentional feature -- but, if you're finding it confusing / unintuitive, please let us know.
