Since always JA2 had the bad habit to forget your mercs' orientation and stance when the sector they are in loses focus.
To add injury to insult, when you come back they are always placed standing, looking towards the map center, so any invading enemy could catch them unawares and get a free turn of target practice...

Yet the game engine does remember their location on the map (most of the times), would it really be that hard to add orientation and stance to that memorized information?

I don't think memory might be a problem, there are only 24 (8x3) possible positions for each merc. Compared to the size and complexity of their inventory, it's almost nothing...
