Yes, this is the "intended" behaviour. The data isn't cached in any
way. What I've done to circumvent that is to load all of the roles as
a hashref in $c->stash->{ user_roles } in my auto sub, and just
consult that stash data whenever i need to check roles.

if ( $c->user_exists ) {
    $c->stash->{ user_roles }
       = { map { $_ => 1 } $c->user->roles };

So i can do:

[% IF user_roles.editor %]
[% END %]
