Hello,

If you are using standard EM physics, then after each step of an ion in 
media its mean change will be recalculated and updated for 
G4DynamicParticle object. This is nothing to do with initial change of an 
ion.

Since 9.1 we have introduced a new process G4ionGasIonisation which is not 
following this rule but uses fixed ion charge defined at the beginning of 
tracking so far. This process is development and need more validation. We 
plan to introduce a more realistic model.

By the way, your question should be posted in EM physics forum
