Cascade beam emitter lifetime module is broken. 

Working as expected in 4.19 CL# 4033788

Found in 4.20 CL# 4233996, 4.20 CL# 4247867

This is a regression.

Steps to Reproduce
  1. Open the editor
  2. Create a new particle system
  3. Set the TypeData to Beam Data
  4. In the Beam Data module set the "Beam Method" to "Distance"
  5. Place the emitter in the level

The beam particle will stay there infinitely 

The beam particle would die and respawn based off the lifetime module
