You need to look at the policy that makes the Entitlementconfiguration object.
Usually this is in the Startup policy set as David called out.
Usually you have to add your own entitlement handling in that policy. Or in the next policy, intercept the write to eDir of the modify for attr-name XMLData on the EnttlementConfiguration object and tack on your extra set of nodes.
As always, trace is the way to show what happens and why... In this case I would suggest moving to the User Discussions area instead of comments on an article for further troubleshooting.
