I've set the "Set Field Value to constant or Groovy expression Function" in the create transition of a subtask workflow. This function is placed after the "Creates the issue originally. " function. It should set the field "Remaining Estimate" which is a Long Field to a certain value. As groovy expression I've set "new Long(10)". But this won't work. After creating the subtask the field is empty.
I just tried exactly what you did (but without checking "Copy only if not set") and it worked just fine (it set the remaining estimate to 10 seconds). You cannot use the "Copy only if not set" option because this field always has a value (zero by default).
Did you try moving the post-function to before the Creates the issue originally post-function?
Do you have any error in the logs? To more easily locate the execution of your script, you can try adding a log statement like this at the beginning of your script:
log.error("I am here!");
and look for "I am here!" in atlassian-jira.log
I've placed the function before and after the Create Issue.The result is the same: negative. And: the post function is called during the transition as the log shows:

This is how I defined the post function (here without logging):
