Updating external AS links

I have a .fla file which is pulling in a document class. Within that main class document many other classes are being called like the code attached.

my question is when I make a change to an external .as file such as XaMLDiplomat.as, and then republish the .fla, should those changes update to the .swf? I am not seeing the changes I made to the external .as file, so that is the reason for this post.
