This same problem has been reported in [1] and [2] but can't be duplicated.

Are you using a plugin to add the custom post type and if so what plugin is 

Or are you using register_post_type in your theme's functions.php file?  If 
so please provide that code.

Note - Using a custom post type of 'book', I just changed a book to Draft, 
then republished and at both stages the post_type in the database remained 
book.  I'm using default permalinks with no plugins activated.
