Partitionmanager does not change the partition type if you change the
filesystem (e.g. format from ntfs to ext4). Only when changing NOT when delete
and recreating the partition.

see fdisk -l the ID column that shows the partition type (e.g. 7 for ntfs)

I have reported that bug already upstream, see
