Question cold boot changes voltage settings

My cpu overclock is very stable at 3.95 ghz with a +.258 vcore offset. (bad b450 board doesn't allow for fixed voltage or llc). For some reason every time I cold boot my pc, and I go into bios before it tries to get into windows, I check in pc health, and it says only 1.14 volts are being applied to my cpu, even when the voltage offset doesn't change. This makes it so I have to restart my pc, for it to actually apply my vcore offset, and once I go back into bios it says 1.404 volts, which is good. TL;DR bios doesn't apply voltage settings after cold boot for some reason. I know it is not resetting to auto voltage, because the auto is much lower than 1.14 volts.

(r5 2600 and gigabyte b450m ds3h) I am also at the most recent bios f42e

I've had something similar happen, but it was my own fault. I had saved a profile for my OC, and directed bios to load profile #1 at boot. So if I made a change, even saving it, it would revert to profile #1 on next cold boot. By shutting down windows, it saves current boot to cmos, so would be fine until reset/hard boot which would revert.
