If you are referring to the wifi bootloader patch, it will persist until another bootloader is installed.
Doing an OTA/odin/Kies official update to 4.3 will replace the bootloader with the as of yet irreplaceable official 4.3 bootloader. Simply flashing a 4.3 rom via recovery wouldn't typically replace the bootloader.
Likewise, doing an odin flash of an official 4.1.x rom will replace the bootloader with the replaceable 4.1.x versions bootloader. To get the 4.3 compatible function back you will need the odin the patch again.
