Unprotected OLE Objects on a protected sheet become protected after save

PFA workbook OLE.zip (459.2 KB)

The sheet is protected (Password “A”) and has a PDF OLE Object inserted.
The object itself is unprotected and can be double clicked.rDb2wG0Jad.png (6.8 KB)

If I open with Aspose.cells, then save, the ole object is now protected and cannot be clicked on.

Sample Code:

        var workbook = new Workbook("OLE.xlsx");
