WDC was the guilty one !

So NoScript settings are kept in the cache...
The main NoScript settings, including the site permissions, are stored in storage-sync-v2.sqlite, storage-sync-v2.sqlite-shm, and storage-sync-v2.sqlite-wal in Firefox 79+. The last two are normally temporary files which get "written out" to storage-sync-v2.sqlite on quit. But for some reason that isn't happening with the storage-sync-v2.sqlite files, and some overzealous cleaning programs don't account for that possibility.

If you want to get rid of these "temporary" files without losing any data, you could completely quit Firefox, then open the storage-sync-v2.sqlite (leaving the -shm & -wal files alongside it) in sqlitebrowser, then quit sqlitebrowser without making any changes.
*Always* check the changelogs BEFORE updating that important software!
