Deskbar preferences are not persistent across reboots

I am working on ticket https://dev.haiku-os.org/ticket/5026, which involves pulling Deskbar preference settings and using them to limit "recent folders" on Backgrounds preflet. During my development process I noticed that the Deskbar settings file isn't properly created, but yet the Deskbar settings were still persisting. Then I realized that because the Deskbar is always running, the settings are being changed in memory but when you reboot Haiku the preferences return to the defaults because they cannot be loaded from the settings file (since it was never created).
I'm planning to fix this issue as part of #5026 since without the fix I can't get Backgrounds working the way the ticket intended, but I wanted to record this as an issue for tracking purposes.
I found this issue in hrev51985
