Not Refereeing the Resubmitted Paper You Recommended for Revision

Here is something that happens in the world of academic philosophy publishing:

(a) Referee agrees to referee a paper.
(b) Referee deems the paper worthy of a “revise and resubmit.”
(c) Editor endorses and conveys the R&R judgment along with the referee’s comments to the author.
(d) Author revises the paper and resubmits it.
(e) Editor asks original referee to review the resubmitted paper.
(f) Referee says no, not going to do that.

My view on this is WT(f)?

But perhaps that’s an unusual response. What is the consensus on when all of the above happens? Does (a) commit the referee to saying yes at (f)?
