After building a Proof-of-Concept setup of Bareos, I can add and update various components like Clients, Devices, etc. But when modifying a FileSet, those changes are not reflected in the running Bareos config.
Details and research
PoC is built on Bareos 20.0.1, installed on a CentOS Linux 8.3 box. Till now all components, concepts and tasks are working as excepted. I can run backup and restore jobs succesfully.
show filesets the updated fileset is visible (so it is read from config).
list filesets the previous original fileset is listed. None of my modifications (i.e. added exclusions) is reflected over here.
When running jobs for new clients or rerunning previous jobs, I see no diferrence in FileSets in logging and no effects of my modifications (fewer files due to added exclusions).

What I've tried
I've tried to reload/restart Bareos in a few ways, with no difference:
systemctl restart bareos-dir
- reboot server
Tried to educate myself by Bareos and Bacula official documentation of various versions, but couldn't find a specific part which describes this behaviour.
