Removing a road with items placed on it will destroy those items

As per the title, placing an item on a road and then removing the road will permanently destroy the items placed upon it.

Steps to reproduce:

  1. Build a road.
  2. Place items on the road.
  3. Destroy the road.

Expected Results:
The items should drop to the ground, available for your hearthlings to come pick up.

Actual Results:
The items are completely destroyed. If the item is a chest, it also destroys all items within the chest.

I tried this with various other structures (walls, foundations, rooftops, etc), and they all behaved as expected.
