Are you sure it's not just using another database name?

(I don't know what zoneminder-mp is, under debian I just use zoneminder)

There is a known issue with zm deleting symlinks during upgrade, but that only deletes events, not config.

I'm not sure... it has to do with the way the package is made for your distro and not ZM specifically.
There is no code in ZM source to drop databases like that.
