It seems to me that not restoring ghost tags is not a problem for the finished document. Is this wrong og is it maybe correct for some tags and not for others? I am using SDL Trados 2017.

I was just asking myself the same question. I tried this on an xml file. The ghost tag that was correctly placed in Trados is also correctly placed in the target file after translation and looks exactly like the one in the source file. I don't know if there are other circumstances where a ghost tag could cause trouble but here it worked.
