protobuf.js version: master (tested on 8de21e1)

I know master branch is not published but I want to report this behavior, maybe is unknown. In 6.6.5 is working fine.

const protobuf = require("protobufjs");

const proto = `
package main;

message Foo {
  optional Bar bar = 2;
  optional string a = 1;
  message Bar {

const root = protobuf.parse(proto).root;

const Foo = root.lookupType('main.Foo');

const foo = Foo.create({
  bar: Foo.Bar.create({})

const buffer = Foo.encode(foo).finish();
const msg = Foo.decode(buffer);
➜ node test.js
