Whatever I change "SSLCipherSuite" to, it never shows up in httpd.conf.

Whatever I change "TraceEnable" to, it has no affect on httpd.conf.

Whatever I change "ServerTokens" to, it has no affect on httpd.conf.

Are you sure httpd.conf doesn't have an immutable flag set to it?

I know a common tactic for those unfamiliar with our EasyApache system is to modify httpd.conf then set it to immutable thinking that will preserve their changes.

Yes, I'm sure it is not immutable. I always use the rebuild_httpdconf script to make changes to httpd.conf, and that always works fine. I often make changes to the template files in /var/cpanel/templates/apache.

I actually added the Trace, ServerTokens, and SSLCiphers to the template files to add them to httpd.conf since the WHM screen didn't make the changes. That works fine that way.

I am on the newest Current build.
