When updating a template for a type, the objects of that type, using that template are not updated.
Steps to reproduce the behavior:
Go to a type, eg. Book
Duplicate existing default template and add own items e.g. “recommended by - human”, or “book type - tag”
Go to set aggregating this type, eg Reading List and add new item using the duplicated template, fill in fields
Go back to the Book type and edit the template, eg add “lists - tag”
When opening the newly created object of the chosen type, the new relation is not present. eg, the existing books, don’t show the “lists - tag” relation
I would have expected the existing objects of type book using the duplicated template, to be updated to include the new relation. Otherwise I’d have to manually go through all existing items to add the new relation, which defeats the purpose of a template.

The workflow you are describing is unfortunately not implemented yet. When a new object is created, the state of the template at the moment of creation is used. There is no inheritance or link between template and object after creating the object. Changes to the template will therefore only be reflected when creating a new object after that change. There are several feature requests that might resolve your issue. Let me know if you cannot find them, then I’ll take a look and link them here.
