Starting with this update, all post revisions will copy and overwrite meta data added by plugins i.e. things in the editor sidebar. For example, SEO titles set by Yoast SEO or RankMath will be copied to the revision, and edits you make to these fields in the revision will override the original post when published.

Existing post revisions you’ve created before updating to version 1.02 of Strive won’t copy or overwrite post data added by plugins.
