 Thanks for the additional info, shanebp.

 Correct. It's saved only for children. I wouldn't classify this as a bug -
 the correct field type for your use case is not 'selectbox' but is instead

 Yup, this diagnosis is correct. Either we should add 'option' to the
 permitted field types, or we should make a special exception in
 xprofile_insert_field() for 'option'. Moving to 2.1 to solve it one way or
 another. I'm also attaching a unit test that demonstrates the failure.
