This is the expected behavior. Please see README for utils (especially
the last sentence below):

PDA data can be dumped in text format (PDRs in hex format using 16-bit
words) with -D option. This format matches with the one used in
Intersil's PDA files and it can be used to modify PDA contents for a
download by using -P option. This does not overwrite PDA in the flash,
so the modified PDA text file must be specified with all download
