PreUpdate, PrePersist, PostLoad non functional with merge

Description

Given an entity, I use a transient Map which I serialize in strings using PreUpdate, PrePersist and I deserialize it back when I do PostLoad. If using EntityManager.merge, neither the Pre, nor the Post hooks are called.
Without these features, it's not possible to achieve the functionality. If this is not a bug, please kindly suggest an alternative to achieve the functionality.
