You are right.

After more investigation, I find that Emacs 25.2.2 on Ubuntu 18.04
is not saving the x-display properties while Emacs 26.1 on Debian
testing does.

Inspection of enriched.el on each system shows that on Ubuntu
enriched-translations is missing the portions

    (FUNCTION      (enriched-decode-foreground "x-color")
                   (enriched-decode-background "x-bg-color")
                   (enriched-decode-display-prop "x-display"))
    (display       (nil         enriched-handle-display-prop))


Apologies, I should have looked more carefully.
