Save means it will save the Test Plan.

So if you save an empty test plan with the same name (JMeter prompts
for the name) of course it will replace it.

The Workbench is temporary. It is never saved automatically.

If you want to save items under the Workbench, you have to select them
and use "Save Selection As..."
