SOLVED Why can't you update eximmailtrap and autodiscover_proxy_subdomains manually?

In the documentation it has this warning for trying to manually change eximmailtrap or autodiscover_proxy_subdomains using the WHM API:

This value is dynamic. You must perform additional steps to update it manually. We recommend only modifying this value in the interface.

Why? What other steps need to be done? I've seen many other posts saying it's as easy as just running using the API anyway ( WHM V1 API - set_tweaksetting for X-Source Header ). Any reason not to?
