Loading Pattern Question

I have been using Clarity a long time (over 7 years). We are currently on 12.0.6 but one thing that I am not sure about and is becoming an issue is when loading pattern changes take effect.
For over a year we have set Front to be the default loading pattern. With changes to the way we are trying to do resource scheduling and allocations, many project managers want to use other loading patterns - namely Contour to spread the work out so it doesn't appear all bunched up in the current month.

Now, PM's use OWB, but they do not do Autoschedule. I thought that chagning the loading pattern within the UI on an assignment will redistribute the ETC's accordingly, but when they redo Allocate From Estimates it appears nothing changes.

So, is Autoschedule the ONLY way loading pattern changes take effect? I didn't think that was the case.
