Short answer: I'm afraid you have to do it on your own.

A little --verbose:
Geany stores custom configuration inside ~/.config/geany. In case of
filedefs this typically includes changed commands for a particular
programming language. Due to this fact, these files are not updated to
keep user's changes.

Which configuration in detail did you expect to be updated?
