I think the web interface code will call on the web installer only if
the database version number stored in the database does not match the
version number stored in the code.

No. Are the added preferences no longer in the "Local Use" section in
system preferences?  I have not checked that on a changed Koha here
recently (once a preference is set, it rarely changes).

Reinitialise the zebra index? (-r option of rebuild_zebra.pl)
