I cannot speak on any specific bug as that is a more technical thing and I am not experiencing any Butler bugs myself, however I know over the years I learned to praise my Butler each day, ensure they had their own bed/bathroom with a bathtub (in my experience they will not use a shower), ensured they had enough time to eat something and I force them to sleep by the manage Butler options every night and send them to bed. Once I started this .. my butler would always stay with me.
My routine - make sure they go to sleep around same time each night, and my Butler gets up/has bath, sits down to eat breakfast, one of my Adult Sims praises him/her and then chats with them for a few Sim minutes then the Butler is off to do chores.
If they were unhappy or I worked them too hard, they would leave and I would get a new one and it was constantly changing. Sometimes you can get bad butlers with undesirable traits and this can cause conflict as well. You can 'get to know them' to find out their traits or edit them directly with the CAS cheat. You can fire the one you do not like and get another Butler.
I haven't had the issue with them leaving the household since I started changing the way my Sims managed them. If everything is provided to them and all their needs are met then I am not quite sure.

@SerenityVIII - I gave up on the butler and now use the robot.

What bothers me is that every time I leave the lot or switch families, my butlers lose the options I've chosen for them. For example, I have to tell them again to bring all visitors in, or to leave my plants alone or stop repairing objects. It's really annoying.

Hi guys, let me ask you something: do you press "M" or use "Travel..." option on cellphone?
I found out that if I use Travel option my Sims losts their assignments with beds. Could be the butler bugs (spawning a new one every change of scenery, etc.) somehow related to that?

@serenity2133 you asked: I just started using the Robot in one of my games however I have not yet experienced all that the Robot can do. How do you find the Robot with household tasks and or childcare?
I think you have to keep directing the robot to do chores. The Servo needs to be "enhanced" to be able to open "modules" which takes a lot of time and parts (to buy or make). Even when fully enhanced I have found I have to direct Servo to do things. So - a Servo is not a perfect helper but better than the butler because you can direct their actions. Servos have a lot of down town "recharging" or "repairing" but I think they are fun. Servos can also have careers - but I haven't tried that.
