It's in the manual ;-)


There is a tricky aspect to these settings; If first you have set a
value by setup.override and then removes it again you will experience
that the value persists to exist. This is because it is saved in the
backend users profile. Therefore, if you have once set a value, do not
remove it again by rather set it blank if you want to disable the
effect again!" [1]
