Persistence preset: 'Night Light' settings
It would be useful to persistently set the ‘Night Light’ feature through the Dotfiles persistence mechanism. Testing indicates that settings for this are not saved to the .config/monitors.xml file, which is where I expected to find it. I couldn’t find any evidence of the setting being saved after examination of likely other hidden config files.
Unless this is a fingerprinting risk?

Indeed, this is not a per-monitor preference, but a global one, that is stored in dconf/gsettings. See
Feature #5979 for another example and some more discussion. Feature #7074 and Bug #7148 are also about prefs stored there.
