Do you mean /var/unbound/etc/unbound.conf ?

If var is a tardir, that means it's a memory filesystem. You need to
save it after changes.

I think it requires the config to be inside the chroot. So you really have
to save changes to /var after you edit the config. Or, roll a flashrd
system where /var is in the "vnddir" category instead of "tardir"...
