Right, that's the correct behaviour isn't it? Pages freed on source VM do
not magically reappear on destination VM?

Yes, that's weird. Do you know what condition causes guest memory allocation
failure on xc_domain_restore? Is it due to hitting the guest maxmem limit in
Xen? If so, is maxmem the same value across multiple iterations of
save/restore or migration?
