I tested the RadComboBox control with check-boxes on a simple page, but I was not able to reproduce the issue you are facing. Please find attached the sample page I used for testing and let me know what I am missing in order to reproduce this issue. I also recorded a video
showing the result of my test(all checked items are visible in the input on page load).
