I tested the behavior and it seems that it is caused by specific browser behavior. The checkboxes are still checked after clicking F5 in Firefox and IE. However, the checkboxes are cleared in Chrome.
You can replicate the same behavior with a simple input placed on the page:
This most likely means that some browsers cache the content. In order to clear the checkboxes completely you can use Ctrl + F5 to refresh the page.
