It looks like you to save the contents of r() as well.

webuse nhanes2
regress bpsystol agegrp##sex
estimates save foo,replace
margins agegrp
_return hold foo

//other stuff
sysuse auto ,clear
regress price i.rep
margins rep

//return to marginsplot
webuse nhanes2,clear
est use foo
estimates esample:
_return restore foo
