Update config-drive after metadata change?

My OS install does not have access to the metadata service hosted at http://169.something.something. Only way I can get to the metadata is via config-drive. Mounting it works fine and I can read any metadata that I set at VM creation.

However, if I modify any metadata, it is never reflected in /media/configdrive/openstack/latest/meta_data.json.

Is this expected? The updated metadata is visible via nova client or Horizon UI. It just never gets pushed to config-drive. I've tried soft/hard rebooting the machine to no avail.
