How do I troubleshoot nvidia-settings not persisting between sessions?

I'm running Ubuntu 20.04 and using the nvidia-495 driver.

nvidia-settings simply do not persist between sessions. Specifically resolution but also opengl settings etc.

I have a specific resolution of

viewportin: 1830x1020 viewportout: 1830x1020+45+30 panning: 1830x1020

Without this viewport out my display is "stretched" past visability.

On reboot standard 1920x1080 resolution is applied.

Setting resolution from 4k to full HD (1920x1080) will result to black screen with mouse cursor. Ubuntu 20.04 with 5.11 kernel and Nvidia driver 470

I am running Lenovo Thinkpad x1 carbon gen 6 with 4k (3840x2160) screen running Ubuntu 20.04 and 5.11.0-37-generic kernel. Most of 3rd party programs have scaling issues with 4k resolution. The font is too small and object are out of position. For example Matlab or Rviz etc. To resolve the issue I would like to set resolution of my 4k monitor to full hd to avoid scaling.
