Actually the text-attribute that has a "$attrname" (without curly braces) gets removed when saving
the FXML document.

Everything else is still as reported if the text attribute has a "${attrname}" value (and eventually
gets removed upon saving it, cannot recreate it as of yet, but observed that behaviour).
