Answer

When a file is restored, so are its permissions.

Example:
  1. A user has a text file X.txt,  and a snapshot (day D) was created.
  2. One day later (D+1), the permissions of the file are changed.
  3. On D+2, the file is being restored via Windows' Restore Previous Version (file datestamp is now day D again) 
  4. The restored file has the permission of day D, the day the snapshot was created.
