I am running 26.1. The Org version is Org mode version 9.4.4 (9.4.4-25-g3a522a-elpaplus @ /home/loris/.emacs.d/elpa/org-plus-contrib-20210222/) list-load-path-shadows lots of lines like /home/loris/.emacs.d/elpa/org-plus-contrib-20210222/ox-md hides /home/loris/.emacs.d/elpa/org-20210222/ox-md where elpa/org-plus-contrib hides elpa/org, and lots of lines like /home/loris/.emacs.d/elpa/org-plus-contrib-20210222/ox-md hides /usr/share/emacs/26.1/lisp/org/ox-md where elpa/org-plus-contrib hides Org from the OS. Having both org and org-plus-contrib installed from ELPA has always bothered me a bit, but I seem to remember that certainly at some point several years ago, there was an issue (to do with dependencies? or use-package?) which meant I had some problems with org-plus-contrib on its own. Maybe that was wrong back then and maybe is still wrong now. However, duckduckgoing a bit I find the following issue https://github.com/jwiegley/use-package/issues/597 from a few years back. Maybe that's what I was hitting. I'll change make my set-up to just use org-plus-contrib and see whether I can reproduce the org-preserve-local-variables error.
