Fields are not automatically synced. The fields in the JSON files will be loaded before the fields in the database, thus overriding what is in the DB.
The only time that this is not the case is when you edit a field group. When you edit the field group then it is loaded from the DB and the JSON file is ignored. This is why you need to sync the group before you make any changes to it in the admin.
