No, the conf file is only read at startup. But as the server does (or
should unless you've got an incredibly large setup) start up in
seconds, it should be no big problem to restart it to reload the
config. That's what a number of people are doing where they have an
external system to build/update their config.

Christmas stocking fillers. Some available as e-books.
