Owner display not persistent

If I have a data view of an object and include the Owner/name as one of the fields displayed, the data in this field doesn't seem to be visible. Yes, I do have the Store Owner property checked in the domain model. If I open the form to create a new record, the Owner/name field displays my login name, but after save, if a re-open the record, the field is then empty. Is this normal behaviour?

When creating an object, the "owner" reference is set to the user who triggered the creation. Unless some action changed the "owner" reference on purpose it should stay the same. Is the "system$owner" column also empty in the database for the object you are referring to?
