I'll need to double check what was the behavior with 5.2.22, regarding the "LastGuestSizeHint" and whether it was getting modified if you were entering Full-Screen or not. It seems to me that it should not be getting modified when in Full-Screen, that's a special mode, not a window size...

Then I'll file a ticket about it...

I'm running 5.2.22 now and so far it works correctly, returning to the correct size when exiting FS. Windows 10 host, and all 3 vm's: Windows 2016, 7, and XP guests behave correctly.

I'd guess it's just recording the largest size seen to use as a future size hint. If it was just a "last size used" then I would expect each VM monitor to be recorded separately, because there is potentially more than one and because it includes more than just size - e.g. it will include mazimized/minimized state etc.

The new Development builds, not the 6.0.x, the 6.0.97 ones, after rev. r128641 seem to have squashed the bug. Confirmation appreciated...

I loaded 6.0.97-128642 and tested, and it was working correctly for me.

As explained in the related ticket #18408: Exiting seamless mode does not revert guest display back to previous resolution, it has been fixed in the 6.0.5 builds as well.

I added the ticket information in the first post.

Also tested VirtualBox-6.0.97-128642-Linux_amd64.run (before seeing your most recent post), and confirm issue is indeed fixed. Thank you devs!
