elektra-sync-flag(7) -- detection for writing
Elektra keeps track of changes the user makes on data structures. Because the KeySet can be composed in the way the user wants it, the KeySet does not give enough information if changes occurred within. Instead, changes will be marked in individual Key objects. On modifying functions, the so-called sync flag will be set. See also keyNeedSync().
