Library Updates not recognized without refresh

  1. Make changes to library
  2. Publish
  3. Go to other tab with open project
  4. No library updates detected

Am I missing something? Should library updates automatically show up?

They usually do show up. I would guess for large libraries it could take a bit of time until the update is loaded properly. But it definitely could be a bug, so I recommend you to report it to Figma support team via support@figma.com or the support request form.
