Why do you lose dust of hatred when you disconnect

Was pretty far into a farm today and dcd before I could extract. Game crashes fairly regularly (4-5 times a session). I don’t understand why you lose dust or potion buffs when dcs still occur this regularly

Boosting this question.

I have a screenshot of a Network Disconnect today, but I had 26,927 Seeds of Hatred collected. I was going to extract them into Red Dust currency, but lost them all.
