Privilege distribution

I am following the instructions for enabling privilege distribution (would be nice if it were enabled by default!) and I observe this behaviour -- is it expected?

I create a cluster running in Docker Swarm with this configuration:

Connected to Management Server at: mysql_mgmt:1186
Cluster Configuration
[ndbd(NDB)] 2 node(s)
id=2 @ (mysql-5.7.18 ndb-7.5.6, Nodegroup: 0, *)
id=3 @ (mysql-5.7.18 ndb-7.5.6, Nodegroup: 0)

[ndb_mgmd(MGM)] 1 node(s)
id=1 @ (mysql-5.7.18 ndb-7.5.6)

[mysqld(API)] 15 node(s)
id=4 @ (mysql-5.7.18 ndb-7.5.6)
id=5 @ (mysql-5.7.18 ndb-7.5.6)
id=6 @ (mysql-5.7.18 ndb-7.5.6)

For one MySQL Server I fish out the temporary root@localhost password, log in, change the root@localhost password and then follow the instructions to enable privilege distribution:

Now if I try to log into another MySQL Server with the updated root password it rejects it. It still wants the original temporary password.

If I issue AGAIN the ALTER USER command to change the root@localhost password now I can log into the other servers with the updated password.

I also found that if I restart a MySQL Server service it will pick up the altered password:

docker service update --force mysql_mysql_server2

Does the initial conversion to distributed privileges not copy the updated root password? Or the other services are not aware of it?
