This is difficult as copy paste is text based, a paste in LDCad does not 'know' where it came from it just appends those lines to the current model one by one parsing them as they come. The problem is certain lines are not allowed inside a normal model (like the path constrains etc), so those will be skipped during paste. Leaving the references to them as 'missing' parts.
You can re-add those parts by adding a new (path) submodel using the same name though.
And then copy paste the path constrain lines etc from the original.

You could copy the "0 FILE myBendedPart.ldr" upto "0 !LDCAD GENERATED...." and append it to the new file using an external plain text editor.
This should resolve the above mentioned missing parts.

MPD submodels can only be used within the same mpd, this is a LDraw limitation. If you want to use a submodel from multiple MPD's you must save it in a seperate .ldr file (via 'session/detach ...' or 'session/duplicate..' which offers to make a new standalone file of the duplicate.)
