Good luck and share if you can find them.  I had a similar problem.  I have a feeling they are stored in the printer memory.

The only answer I've been able to find so far with Google are a couple of responses labeled "correct" on one of the Adobe forums that basically say no one knows where they're stored which is silly. Someone knows.

This was suggested as a solution on this forum but doesn't appear to work for me, even after restarting my Mac.

The settings I'm trying to restore after reinstalling the printer are the Saved Presets found under the Print Settings menu. I suspect that if there's anyone on the forum that knows where that would be stored, it's you.
The Save Presets in the Epson dropdown menu (which you should never use in Lightroom Classic BTW) are stored in a plist.
Example: com.apple.print.custompresets.forprinter.EPSON_SC_P800_Series.plis
You don't want to be messing with these kinds of files.

Once I knew what to search for that was the common answer I kept getting. I tried saving a new preset for my Epson P5000 and the date and time on that file changed to the current date and time. However, replacing that file with an older one from both Time Machine and Carbon Copy Cloner did not restore all of the presets that used to be available as I had hoped. I restarted Photoshop and then my computer to see if that had any effect but it did not. If that is the right file, I'm not sure why replacing it with an older version of it that should have had a bunch more presets didn't restore those presets but it didn't.

Andrew, you're right, that file is kind of a goofy thing. If I add a print preset the timestamp on that file changes to the current time/date. However, if I replace it with a version of it with different presets, nothing happens. If I remove it from it's location, nothing happens. The printing presets remain as is. If I delete the printer and reinstall it I go back to having no presets. At that point, if I put a copy of that file in the proper location that has presets and restart my computer, I get all the presets back again. On that basis, before deleting my printer in the future, I'm going to duplicate that file to my desktop and then replace it after reinstalling the printer. On a side note, all of the custom roll paper sizes that I've created remain available no matter how many times I delete and reinstall. I assume those are stored in a different location for some reason.

My issues with manufacturer-provided ICC profiles went away when I started using Colorbyte Image Print Black RIP. No more tests, no more wasted time, paper and money. It's expensive, but the savings and lack of frustration, is worth the investments. Colorbyte offers excellent profiles that work only with their software for all of the major brands of papers and a bunch that I have never heard of too.

I upgraded my Epson P800 to the new P900 about a year ago so no more wasted black ink switching from photo to matte black. Now I can use of my stock of various Hahnemuhle fine art papers when appropriate for the subject matter.

I can also experiment with new papers, like Ilford's bamboo fine art paper, without in trepidations.

As I still have this problem I was hoping that the revival of my post meant that someone had come up with a solution or at least had the same problem but my impression from your post is that you read the title but not the following discussion. I appreciate your input regarding factory profiles but that turned out to not be the problem. In any event, I use i1 Profiler to make my own profiles.
