[ESS] ESS ignores roxygen configuration ess-roxy-tags-param?

Hi all,

I see from the ess configuration that we can customize the list of
roxygen tags, so I added @noRd and @example to the list and saved to
.emacs like this:

 '(ess-roxy-tags-noparam (quote ("export" "noRd")))
 '(ess-roxy-tags-param (quote ("author" "aliases" "concept" "examples"
"format" "keywords" "method" "exportMethod" "name" "note" "param"
"include" "references" "return" "seealso" "source" "docType" "title"
"TODO" "usage" "import" "exportClass" "exportPattern" "S3method"
"importFrom" "importClassesFrom" "importMethodsFrom" "useDynLib"
"rdname" "slot" "details" "description" "example")))

but when I type in an R script like this

##' @name
##' @noRd
##' @export
##' @examples
##' @example

the highlighting does not work for @noRd and @example.

Is this an expected behavior of ESS or I missed anything? Thanks a lot!
