I checked the /var/lib/dhcp/etc/, and found there is a new subnets folder under the existing /var/lib/dhcp/etc/subnets/, containing all the subnet files.but the new added subnet file was not copied to the existing /var/lib/dhcp/etc/subnets/.

This really isn't a DHCPD issue but rather a SLES issue and their
startup scripts. Take a look at /etc/init.d/dhcpd and see what steps it
follows in the startup. You should be able to figure out what it is
doing in there.
