I have no idea which Disk Druid you're using but it obviously isn't
the one shipped with Fedora's installation program.

I've installed (from scratch) all the Fedoras one after the other
on the same computer. In all cases, DD only formated the partitions
I told it to partition ( the / and swap partitions) and left the
others (a partition I mount on /media/data and /home) intact.

If you prefer fdisk, then just use that instead of DD.
