It doesn't get rewritten at boot, only upon a change made to the policy
via semodule or semanage (both of which use libsemanage as their
backend). libsemanage manages a private store
under /etc/selinux/targeted/modules, applies all changes in a sandbox
there first, and then installs to the real locations upon a successful
completion of a transaction.
