Not a bug.

These "global" setting have to be set to the desired value before the
device is created.  And it is at creation time that these global
values are "inherited" by the device.

Afterwards changes to the global value will not propagate to those
devices again, because that might override a changed setting made
by the user.

It is only newly created devices which get these values.
