No, that is to be expected, and all should work fine.

???? What do you mean?
The taking over of settings does not take texmfcnf.lua into *any*
account, and *NEVER* copies any files. It reads only the previously
installed collections and settings from the installer, and applies 
it to the new installation. Nothing NOTHING is copied over!

Could you please be more specific what you mean with the above sentence?

Best wishes
