no, the link you provided did not help.
It says nothing regarding my question.
How to setup a password is already known to me.
I asked, why I can save everything else other than after-password-setup-related -option.
It means, I can set a setup password or power-on password or both.
If I try to change them within the very same session, it asks me for the password I just set up.
When I reboot the system with F10, meaning saving the values and exit, the bios forgets password(s) !!
I flashed the bios to its most recent available version ( something 1.22 earlier - something 1.36 now ).
No change in behavior with respect to passwords.
I think my problem / situation is more clear now.
