This is how it should work. I do devtools::load_all and devtools::install all
the time and I haven't noticed unusual behavior. If an object is already in the
package it should be replaced. The sealed issue applies only to *new* objects.

If you have an example of when the existing object is not re-assigned, then
please open a github issue for that.
