ES ignores index.query.bool.max_clause_count in elasticsearch.yml

It seems to me that ES ignores the index.query.bool.max_clause_count
argument in elasticsearch.yml

Setting index.query.bool.max_clause_count: 5000 results in the following

Caused by:$TooManyClauses:
maxClauseCount is set to 1024

Any solution whats going wrong here?
