The problem described below was already present on CW6.x, with USB Multilink Pod and, MCF5213, MCF52223 target.
I declared constant segment at the top of flash like that:
#pragma define_section appident ".appident" far_absolute R__declspec(appident)char appId[] = "My Firware Version";

 in the lcf file:
appId    (RX)  : ORIGIN = 0x0003FFC0, LENGTH = 0x0000003C.app_id :{ *(.appident)} > appId

The flash tools never want to write this segment, this segment exist in the S19 file, and there's no problem with CFFlasher or ProgCFZ.
The flash tool log reports :
