User_options are not returned by /users rest api after jupyterhub is restarted

I’m not 100 % sure if it’s bug or I’m missing something
but I’ve noticed that after jupyterhub is restarted the user_options are empty i.e. {}
when submitting /hub/api/users request
(before restart I’m getting user_options which are persisted in db due implemented in persist user_options by minrk · Pull Request #2446 · jupyterhub/jupyterhub · GitHub)

from looking at code it might be connected to the fact that in apihandler’s server_model takes user_options from spawner and not spawner.orm_spawner see jupyterhub/ at f5bb0a2622be51b02a64eaa23b10b5f66461ba2b · jupyterhub/jupyterhub · GitHub

please advice
any ideas will be welcomed
