Didn't notice anything in the doc about the osqueryd optionally (re)reading an updated flags file. I know there is one to refresh the config but not the flags file.

Correct. The reason some of these options need to be specified in a flagfile (or flags) rather than later configuration is that osquery needs to configure these things at startup, often even before the config plugin is loaded.
