user defined style – positioning ‘above/below’ is ignored

I would like to define a user defined text style. As as starting point the style should look like the ‘String Number’ style, thus the text should have a frame and it should be placed above the stem of the notes. When I create a string number with the default style, everything looks good. But when I change the style of this element to my user-defined one, the placement setting ‘above’ is ignored and the text is placed at the same height as the head of the note. How can I control this behavior?
When I select the element, a right click ‘select / more’ shows that the element still belongs to the element type ‘fingering’ (which is what I want) and the subtype corresponding to the user-defined style. Which is perfectly what I expect.
