That’s not a bug: ‘guix system reconfigure’ does not restart already
running services, simply because it cannot tell whether now is a good
time to restart them.  It’s a decision that’s left to the system

However, note that ‘guix system reconfigure’ loads “replacements” for
each Shepherd service, such that next time you run ‘herd restart FOO’,
you spawn that new version of FOO.

Does that make sense?
