The same happened to me after rebooting when the battery
returned to 100/96% behaviour (The values held for several
reboots, and then after one more reboot, were lost). I now
have the rc scripts poke values into /sys/..../BAT0/ on
bootup. It's been holding for a day now.
(I have a thinkpad and am using tp_smapi to access these
extended features in /sys/)
