--- Comment #2 from Damien Miller <djm at mindrot.org> ---
This is due to ed25519 keys using the new OpenSSH-specific storage
format that retains the key comment, and other key types by default
using PEM that doesn't.

You can force the use of the new format by specifying the -o option to
ssh-keygen when creating keys or resetting existing keys passphrases.
E.g. "ssh-keygen -pof /path/key -C comment" can be used to upgrade a
PEM format to an OpenSSH format and baking in the key comment at the
same time.

At some future time, we'll make the OpenSSH format the default.
