Idle villagers don't show their last job in UI

In AoE II, you can see what was the last thing your villagers were doing before they had to flee from danger or exhausted a resource. Example, instead of being just “villagers” they were named: lumberjacks, miners, farmers, builders, etc. That name sticks until they are tasked with something else.

This is extremely helpful to reassign those same villagers to their original jobs later on. It’s a great aid when micro-ing. AoE IV lacks this and I’ve found it very annoying. I find idle villagers in random places and I don’t know what the heck they were doing.

As this isn’t technically a bug, I’m posting here, but I do find it moderately problematic. Am I the only one?
