I saved my GDS file with the layer numbers matching with the GDS/OASIS mapping number as shown in attached photo. However, when I open the same file again, the layer number and the GDS/OASIS mapping number do not match. How do I fix this?

I guess guess you have enabled the option 'auto map layer/datatype'. With this option any gds layer/datatype combination will map on a different LayoutEditor layer number on a file operation. It is ensured that after a save operation the shape is on the same GDS layer/datatype combination. But the LayoutEditor layer numbers can be different with any file load. If you need a fix mapping with the same LayoutEditor layer number, you need to turn of the automatic mapping after the first file load. You will get a fixed mapping you can edit in the Layer Manager.

How is the automapping turned on / off? Can there be some init-file command to lock layers right after (or before) layertable is loaded?

Mapping and automapping can turned on for the setting for the file format GDS and OASIS independently and are located next to the other setting of these two file formats.
As any settings automapping can be controlled by a macro. So you can create a macro doing all the required setting for you.This macro can also be set as an autostart macro that is executed with any opening of the LayoutEditor. Autostart macros can be set in the macro section of the setup dialog.
