Won't Fixing issues when merging from long-running branch to long-running branch

We’re using Developer Edition Version 7.9.1 (build 27448)

When merging from a long-running branch to another long-running branch, is there a way to avoid having to re-mark issues as Won’t Fix or False Positive?

We have our master branch, then a branch off of that that matches our long-running branch pattern. If we mark something in the long-running branch as Won’t Fix or False Positive and then merge it into the master branch, the master branch does not have it marked appropriately.
