That's by design. You only merge the *property*. The external itself
depends on that property, so after changing that property you have to
run an update for those changes to take effect in the external folder.
It's the very same if you edit the external property manually - if you
don't run update after changing it, the externals folder won't get changed.

And yes, that's all done in the svn library.
