The behavior is similar as native kernel. The change of exclude_guest (0 -> 1) is expected.

On native kernel,

Before:

   perf record -e cycles:u ./div
   perf evlist -v
   cycles:u: ..., exclude_kernel: 1, exclude_hv: 1, ...

After:

   perf record -e cycles:u ./div
   perf evlist -v
   cycles:u: ..., exclude_kernel: 1, exclude_hv: 1,  exclude_guest: 1, ...

Thanks
